Super Eagles of Nigeria Dropped Three Places On The FIFA/COCA World Rankings

Despite booking their place at the Brazil 2014 FIFA World
Cup, the Super Eagles of Nigeria dropped three places on the FIFA/COCA World
Rankings released early today.
Surprisingly, the reigning African champions dropped three spots
from last month’s 33rd ranking despite forcing Italy to a 2-2 draw in an
international friendly played at the Craven Cottage, home-ground of Fulham
Football Club of England.
The Eagles are today ranked 36th in the world and fourth in
Africa behind Côte d’Ivoire Ghana and Algeria, who are placed first, second and
third respectively. These teams will be flying the continent’s flag at next
year’s World Cup in Brazil having secured tickets in the recently concluded
World Cup Playoffs.

However, the Ethiopian national team that lost to the
Stephen Keshi-led Nigerian Eagles on both legs of the World Cup qualifying
playoffs moved two places up the ladder from 95 to 93.
Egypt’s national team climbed 13 places to 38th in FIFA’s
world rankings for November.  The Pharaohs beat Ghana 2-1 at home this
month in the World Cup playoffs but lost on aggregate after their first-leg 6-1
away defeat in Kumasi. American manager Bob Bradley has been sacked after
failing to see the Pharoahs to qualify for the World Cup. Former assistant
coach Shawky Gharib has been hired in his place.
Ghana’s defeat to Egypt in the World Cup playoff return leg
has affected the Black Stars in this month’s FIFA World ranking by slipping
down one place. The Black Stars dropped to 24th position.
South Africa could not gain from their 1-0 friendly win over
Spain last week after FIFA ruled the match out of its ranking profile following
the world champions’ use of a seventh substitution in the game. Bafana remain
in 61st spot.
Spain, Germany and Argentina hold the first, second and
third spots in the world respectively as FIFA Confederations Cup champions
Brazil moved to the tenth position in the world.
The next ranking will be released on 19 December.
