Super Eagle Line Up
Nigeria remained unmoved at number 44 in the latest FIFA rankings for the month of June released yesterday.

The Super Eagles failed to improve on their rankings with seven days to the World Cup despite recording two draws in their friendly matches, a 2-2 draw with Scotland and a goalless draw with Greece.

Nigeria are ranked 28th amongst the 32 countries that will feature at the World Cup and are the least ranked side in Group F  where they have Argentina (5), Bosnia (21) and Iran (43).

In the overall world ranking, Europe still holds onto the top two spots with Spain and Germany while World Cup hosts Brazil climbed up one spot to the third position.

Behind the top three are Portugal, (4th, down 1), Argentina (5th, up 2), Switzerland (6th, up 2) and Uruguay (6th, down 1) who share seventh position.
Algeria have become the top-ranked African side on the 22nd position, after they overtook Cote D’Ivoire who dropped two places to 24th position in second.
