Nigeria has moved up four points from 35th to 31st best football country in the world.

According to the ranking table on FIFA website, Nigeria has 1493 points as against 1481 points gotten in October.

Again, the Super Eagles back to back victory against Benin Republic and Lesotho in the recent AFCON qualifying matches may have contributed to the improvement in the World Best ranking.

However, the Super Eagles are still third in Africa behind Senegal and Tunisia who are 20th and 27th in the world with 1555 and 1506 points respectively.

On the international scene, the top five remain the same. Croatia climbed to 6th position beating Portugal which is now 7th.

Other significant changes are Italy (13th from 15th), Poland (19th from 21st), Serbia (29th from 33rd)¬†and Venezuela (25th from 26th) which is the country’s highest football ranking since FIFA ranking was introduced in 1993.

The next FIFA ranking will be on December 19th, 2019, the last for the year.
