Nigeria’s Super Eagles tumbled five steps down the ladder in the FIFA ranking released this Thursday. They are now 31st in the world from the 30th position they were in the last ranking done on 31 March.
In Africa, they fell to number five from the last fourth position they occupied.
Thus the 10-0 bashing of Sao Tome and the laborious 2-1 home win over Sierra Leone were not very impact-full in their ranking.
On the other hand, African champions, Senegal continue to ride on the crest wave of recurring successes. Not only are they still number one in Africa, the current African champions and World Cup hopefuls are now number 18 in the world, taking two steps up the global ladder.
