Nigerians Attack FIFA on Social Media Over Super Eagles’ Poor Ranking

Super Eagles players

 

Nigerian football fans took to FIFA Twitter page to express their anger over the recently released FIFA World ranking which placed Nigeria as the 50th team in the world and 8th in Africa.

 

Many people have questioned the yardstick which FIFA used to arrive at the ranking and wondered how teams who didn’t even qualify for the 2018 World Cup were ranked better than teams who won games that made them qualify for the World Cup.

 

Before the ranking, the Super Eagles had a sterling performance in the World Cup qualifiers and also came out tops with a convincing win over Argentina during a recently played friendly game.

 

See below the list of the top ten (10) teams in Africa and the world:
