Super Eagles Slip in Latest FIFA Ranking, Holding Steady at 3rd Place in Africa

FIFA, the world football governing body, has unveiled its latest ranking for men’s under 23 national teams in April. Nigeria has experienced a setback, losing two points and sliding to the 30th position globally. The Super Eagles now trail behind Wales and Poland, positioned at 28th and 29th respectively. Nevertheless, Nigeria maintains its stronghold as the third-ranked team in Africa, a position secured after the 2023 African Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire.

 

Despite the dip in points, Nigeria still holds a higher ranking than Ivory Coast, which sits at fifth place. Post-AFCON, the Super Eagles had surged to the 28th position globally, climbing 14 spots. Morocco retains its top spot in Africa, with Senegal following closely in second place.

 

In the broader FIFA rankings, Argentina remains the world’s top-ranked team, trailed by France and Belgium in second and third positions, while England and Brazil secure the fourth and fifth spots respectively.
