Nigeria slipped a spot in the most recent FIFA men’s rankings for June despite a tremendous victory in their final game of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifications and their lone match since the previous FIFA world rankings in June.

The Super Eagles, who were rated 39th in the June rankings, lost three points, bringing them down to 40th.

In their final match of the AFCON qualifiers, the Eagles trounced Sao Tome and Principe 6-0, but the outcome had little real impact on their standing on the rankings table.

With an incredible 15 points, Jose Peseiro’s team won Group A of the AFCON qualifiers and secured a place at the AFCON scheduled to take place in Ivory Coast next year.

The three-time African champions are still in the top six on the continent, which is great news for them because it means they will be among the top seeds when the AFCON draw is made later in 2023.

On the other hand, Morocco is still the top-ranked country in Africa and is currently ranked 13th in the world.

Senegal kept their second place in Africa despite dropping two spots to 20th in the globe.

Only Tunisia, one of the top six nations on the continent, has advanced internationally. They were placed 31 in the previous rankings, but according to the revision announced by FIFA on Thursday, they are now in position 29.

The final two places in Africa are held by Algeria (34) and Egypt (35).

World Cup winners, Argentina, still remains no one ranked nation ahead of France, Brazil, England, and Belgium, nationwide.
