The Nigeria’s Super Eagles have moved up one spot in the latest rankings released by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) on Friday.
The three-time African champions climbed up to 39th position gaining a total of 5.68 to move up a place from their position last April.
In the latest ranking, Jose Peserio’s men stay above Erling Haaland’s Norway, the Black Stars of Ghana, the Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire and the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.
The slight improvement was a result of the team’s victory against the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone this month.
The Super Eagles defeated the Leone Stars 3-2 in Monrovia to secure a place at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
