Nigeria’s recent success in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers has seen the country improve four places on the FIFA monthly rankings.
However, this has not helped them reach top ten in Africa again.
This position is held by Ivory coast.
The Super Eagles have won two games on the bounce defeating Zambia 2-1 away in Ndola and followed it up with a resounding 3-1 win over Algeria in Uyo to head Group B of the Africa zone of the World Cup qualifiers.
Nigeria is now at number 60 on the World rankings moving up four places with 562 points from the previous 534 points.
Cote d’Ivoire lead the continent for the second straight month after toppling Nigeria’s Group B rivals Algeria.
Argentina still occupies the top spot in the world just ahead of Germany and Brazil.
