Nigerians are complaining about the drop of Super Eagles team in the latest FIFA ranking in spite of the sterling performance in the World Cup qualifiers and its convincing defeat of Argentina – one of the world’s finest teams/
Nigeria dropped nine (9) places in the latest football ranking by the International Federation of Association Football ( FIFA ).
FIFA made this latest ranking known on Thursday, putting Nigeria at 50th position in the world and 8th in Africa. It can be recalled that Nigeria occupied the 41st position in the last ranking. This did not augur well for the die-hard fans of the Super Eagles as they expected the recent exploits of the team to have levitated the Eagles to more desirable position in the upward direction.
We don't reckon with FIFA ranking anyway. If you have doubts, ask Algeria, Cameroon and Argentina about us!

In October, Nigeria were ranked 41st in the world and 5th in Africa
In November, Nigeria are now 50th in the world, 8th in Africa.
After all their WC qualifiers without a defeat, beating almighty Argentina.
Who is fooling who?
FIFA should come and explain their politics. 😠

Super Eagles have dropped 9 places to 50th in the latest FIFA rankings. You would have thought the win over Argentina counted for something.
