Nigeria Makes Third African Country In Latest FIFA Rankings

After the conclusion on the recent international break, FIFA has announced its latest rankings for all countries.

The top 10 list in the world has barely changed with Belgium still 1st, France now in 2nd ahead of Brazil in 3rd and Germany slipping more to 16th leaving Chile to a spot behind them in the latest rankings.

Germany lost a 2020 European Championships qualifier this month to the Netherlands, which rises three places to No. 13.

Italy also moves above Germany to No. 15.

Meanwhile, Senegal remain Africa’s highest-ranked nation in 20th position, with Tunisia a further nine places behind and Nigeria 34th, while Iran are wedged in between, in 23rd place, as Asia’s leading country.

However, Kosovo, (119, plus 1) have been rewarded for their valiant showing in UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying by reaching their best-ever position in the FIFA Ranking.

The next edition of the rankings will be released on October 24.
