Every month, FIFA releases a worldwide ranking of football teams and so far, the Nigerian Super Eagles have not held impressive positions.

Not long after they were placed at the 61st position, the team dropped nine places and are now behind countries such as Uganda and Benin Republic at the 70th position.

In spite of this, African countries such as Algeria, Cote D’Ivoire and Ghana were among the top 40 teams in the world, holding the 32nd, 35th and 36th positions respectively.

Considering how great the Super Eagles were in the past, this ranking shows how poor the team’s performance has been recently.

Something should be done about this because most of these players perform brilliantly in their international teams.

We hope the sports ministry looks into this so the Super Eagles, who once achieved FIFA’s highest ranking and won several trophies, return to their past glory.
