Nigeria moved up a spot from the 39th to 38th position in the latest FIFA Rankings released by the world football body on Thursday.

The three-time African champions also moved up a place from the seventh position they occupied last month to the sixth position on the continent.

The Super Eagles have now retained their stay in the top 10 teams in Africa for the ninth consecutive month despite their failure to play at the Gabon 2017 Africa Cup of Nations and a recent 2-0 loss to South Africa in a 2019 AFCON qualifier.

Egypt, who are 25th in the world with 866 points, are Africa’s number one. They dropped a spot from the 24th position they occupied last month. DR Congo remained 28th in the world and are second on the continent.

West Africans Senegal (31) also dropped a spot to rank third while Tunisia (34) with 776 points are fourth while 2017 African champions Cameroon are fifth after climbing up a spot from 36th last month to 35th.

Burkina Faso, Algeria, Ghana and Ivory Coast complete the top 10 on the continent.

On the global scene, Brazil returned to the top of the world rankings after they were second last month. Germany are second while Argentina, Switzerland and Poland are third, fourth and fifth.

Portugal, Chile, Colombia, Belgium and France complete the top 10 in the world.
