Nigeria have tumbled to 35th position on the latest Fifa global rankings for November.


The Super Eagles dropped three spots from their past situation in the wake of agreeing to consecutive draws against Sierra Leone in their 2022 Africa Cup of Nationsqualifying games.

They are the fourth best country in Africa with Senegal retaining the no. 1 position, followed by Tunisia and Algeria in the 2nd and 3rd positions, respectively.

Super Eagles woeful performances in the last two games earlier this month delayed their qualification for the 2022 continental showpiece in Cameroon but they remain at the summit of Group L with eight points after four matches.

Sierra Leone, then again, are among the greatest movers on the continent as they climbed four spots to 116th on the planet.


The biggest movers in Africa are Equatorial Guinea and Burundi who climbed 10 spots after avoiding defeats in their Afcon qualifying games against Libya and Mauritania, respectively.

The next Fifa ranking which will be the final release for 2020 will be announced on December 10.
