Despite finishing their 2018 FIFA World
Cup qualifiers unbeaten, and also
beating Argentina 4-2 in their last
international friendly match, the Super
Eagles have dropped to 50th position in
the latest FIFA ranking released today,
November 23.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria are now
50th in the World and occupy 8th
position in Africa as against the
previous ranking when Nigeria were
ranked 41st in the world and 5th in
Africa.

Nigerians react to poor FIFA ranking of Nigeria
Nigerians have trooped in en masses to
their various social media handles to
condemn and laugh over the ‘ridiculous’
recently released FIFA ranking.
See some of their reactions below:

We don’t reckon with FIFA ranking
anyway. If you have doubts, ask
Algeria, Cameroon and Argentina
about us!

Those people doing that FIFA RANKING, I
don’t know what they are smoking,
Countries like Congo DR, Burkina Faso,
Cameroon even Egypt still above Nigeria,
how come?
Even after beating Argentina, doing well in
WC qualifiers, we went down from 41 –
50th position.

Nigeria drops to 50 on the latest FIFA
ranking. We qualified for the world cup
Unbeaten. We beat Argentina who are
above us on the ranking, yet we dropped.
The entire FIFA is drunk.

So, despite (almost) beating Algeria away
& drubbing Argentina, we DROPPED 9
places (from 41-50) in the rankings.
Whatever FIFA’s criteria are, they’re a
joke! they need to be reviewed!!!
