The Super Eagles of Nigeria have moved three places from 36th to 33rd position in the latest edition of the monthly FIFA World Ranking released Thursday morning by the world football governing body.
The African champions, who are on the verge of sealing a place at next year’s World Cup, however remain static in fourth place amongst the ordering of African teams.
Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Algeria, all in the run for World cup slots, are the teams placed over Nigeria in Africa.
In the top ten, only Spain’s position at the summit remains unchanged, while Germany have pushed Argentina out of second place.
New entries into the top ten are Switzerland (7th, up 7) and England (10th, up 7), both thanks to their recent strong performances in the final group games in the World Cup qualifying.
Italy, meanwhile, have paid heavily for their draw against Armenia, dropping four places to eighth.
The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published after the completion of the World Cup qualifying on November 28.
