LACK of activities since Super Eagles’ last friendly game against Senegal in London, has resulted in Nigeria’s static rating at 40th spot in the latest FIFA Ranking for the month of May. Eagles stay rooted to the same fifth spot they occupied in the continent last month behind Egypt, Senegal, Cameroun and Burkina Faso.
Nigeria’s foe in next month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, South Africa, is placed at 64th in the world and 12th in the continent.
The same inactivity that led to no movement in Africa also affected the global rankings as there was no movement in the top 20 places.
Overall, Brazil sits at the apex of the world with 1672 points, while Argentina is second with reigning world champions Germany placed third.
