Nigeria has yet again dropped in the latest FIFA ranking released Thursday as they now occupy the 51st position in the world and 9th in Africa.
Last month’s ranking saw the Gernot Rohr led side drop to 50th place and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better.
The team that was very impressive throughout world cup qualifiers is now the 6th lowest ranked team going to the world cup. Meanwhile world champions Germany retain the first position followed by Brazil, Portugal, Argentina and Belgium to make up the five best teams in the world as it remained unchanged from what it was last month.
The release also saw Algeria move up six places and back into the top 10 teams in Africa displacing Côte d’Ivoire.
