This is really nice. Super Eagles of Nigeria definitely made some improvements as they are now ranked 41st in the world according to October Fifa ranking released on Monday. This is following their impressive outing against Zambia. The Super Eagles climbed up three places from the 44th position in the world to the 41st spot in the October rankings.

In September, the Super Eagles dropped six places despite their impressive outing against Cameroon – where they got four points over two legs.

According to reports, the upward movement for the Super Eagles can be linked to their qualification for next year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia following their 1-0 win against Zambia on 7 October.

The Nigerian national team are also now ranked fifth on the continent behind the quartet of Tunisia, Egypt, Senegal and Congo DR.
