FIFA Rankings: Super Falcons move eight spots, now 32nd in world


Nigeria women’s football national team, Super Falcons, have moved eight places to become 32nd in the world and first in Africa in the latest FIFA ranking released on Friday.

Super Falcons previously ranked 40th in the rankings released in June before the World Cup.

The team had the second-highest point increase of 94.14 to move from 1554.94 to 1649.08.

They were only second behind Morocco, who had a point increase of 104.22 to move from 1334.08 to 1438.3 and are ranked 58th in the world.

Nigeria had a good campaign at the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, finishing second in the group without losing a game.

That was before eventually bowing out to the Lionesses of England after a 4-2 loss on penalties in the round of 16.

Sweden, which earned a third-place finish at the World Cup, is now ranked number one globally.

Similarly, World Cup winners Spain are now ranked second in the world, with the U.S., England, and France completing the top five in the latest rankings.
