Nigeria Continues To Drop In FIFA Rankings


NIGERIA’S ranking on the monthly FIFA ranking continues to nosedive as the country dropped three places on the latest ranking released by the world’s football ruling body.

According to the May ranking, Nigeria which occupied the 60th position in the last ranking released last month is now placed 63rd in the world.

Shockingly, Sierra Leone rose two places above Nigeria, climbing to the 61st position for the first time in history to stay atop Nigeria.

South Africa were the biggest African risers in the FIFA rankings this month, edging up four places to 67th spot.

Ivory Coast remain top in Africa at 15th, with Ghana second highest (22nd).

DR Congo were the biggest fallers, dropping five places to 124th position.

The 1974 African champions are now rated below the likes of Benin, Central African Republic and Sao Tome and Principe.
