  • Nigeria Retains 47th Position In Latest FIFA Ranking

The Super Eagles will hope to improve on their latest FIFA Ranking of 47 in the world after forthcoming friendlies against better rated teams England, Czech Republic and DR Congo.

Bafana Bafana stay 15th on the African continent with little movement around them‚ but the upcoming COSAFA Cup tournament in the Limpopo province is an opportunity to score points.

On the worldwide scene, just seven global "A" matches, all friendlies, took place in the past month and as a result, there are few movers in the latest FIFA World Ranking.

The Eagles who were unengaged in the past month remained the list ranked country in Group D of the World Cup with favourites Argentina retaining their stronghold at number five as they were no shake-up in the top 48.

It's a far cry from the glory days when Bafana cracked the top 20 in the rankings (at 19th) after winning the 1996 African Cup of Nations.

In Africa, Senegal broke into the top 50 in the world as they moved up one place, joining Ghana in the same position.

The next ranking on June 7, 2018 - seven day to the commencement of the 2018 Fifa World Cup at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow.

The world ranking is still topped by Germany, the 2017 "Team of the Year", followed by Brazil, Belgium.
