Nigeria ranked third in latest FIFA rankings

By Wisdom Deji-Folutile 

Nigeria has climbed to 32nd in the world and third in Africa in the latest FIFA rankings.
This means that the three-time AFCON winners climbed up four places from the last rankings.
Nigeria’s ranking has been heavily influenced by the back-to-back wins over Benin Republic and Lesotho in the final 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Senegal and Tunisia occupy the first and second spots respectively in Africa, with the world rankings placing Belgium, France and Brazil in first, second and third places respectively.
The next FIFA world ranking will be published on May 27, 2021.
