Nigeria move up on FIFA rankings
« on: October 18, 2013, 11:43:53 AM »
Nigeria have moved up to the 33rd position in the latest FIFA  rankings released on Thursday. The Super Eagles gained three spots from last month’s ranking following their victory against Ethiopia in Sunday’s World Cup first leg play-off in Addis Ababa.

The Eagles have had a topsy-turvy year rising to 28th position in May but falling down to 36th in September. Their victory over Ethiopia has now pushed them up three places on the rankings.

Meanwhile, Ethiopia dropped two spots to finish 95 ahead of their return leg against Nigeria in Calabar next month.

Ivory Coast  continue to be the top ranked African side moving up two places to 17 this month. Ghana also move up one spot to finish in 23rd position while Algeria dropped four spots to finish in 32nd position just ahead of Nigeria.

Spain remain the leading country in the world followed by Germany, Argentina, Colombia and Belgium in the top five.
