The Super Eagles who will be playing in the Russian World Cup, were ranked 52nd, one place down from their position last month. They have also dropped in the African rankings as they now sit fifth behind leaders Tunisia, Senegal, Congo DR, and Morocco.

They overtake Morocco and Egypt in the continental standings, and move up to 39th in the overall world standings.

The Atlas Lions, who qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, maintains 4th spot in Africa with 692 points behind Tunisia (23rd), Senegal (27th) and DR Congo (39th).

In addition, the devaluation of last year's CAF African Cup of Nations in calculating points tallies also played a major role.

Germany is still ranked first in the world followed by Brazil and Portugal.
