According to the list released on Wednesday by the world football governing body, the three-time African champion also moved a spot up from 4th to 3rd in the continent.

The rise in Nigeria’s ranking came on the back of the wins recorded over Benin Republic and Lesotho in the final 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers last month.

The Gernot Rohr Boys qualified for next year’s AFCON after beating Benin Republic 1-0 in Porto-Novo and then trouncing Lesotho 3-0 in Lagos.

Senegal and Tunisia occupy the 1st and 2nd spots respectively in Africa.

These are the ten top ranked nations: Belgium (1), France (2), Brazil (3), England (4), Portugal (5), Spain (6), Italy (7), Argentina (8), Uruguay (9), Denmark (10).
