Despite the outstanding performance and unbeaten run the super eagles of Nigeria had during the World Cup Qualifiers and the recent 4-2 defeat over longtime rival, Argentina, FIFA’s world ranking placed the super eagles in 50th position, which is 9 places down from the initial position and number 8 in Africa, behind countries like Senegal, Tunisia, Egypt, Congo DR, Morrocco, Burkina Faso and Cameroon.
Most Nigerian’s argue that the super eagles should’ve had a better ranking due to their performance in recent times. Do you agree with this argument?
Do you think the ranking process or procedure is flawed? And, what effect do you think this ranking would have on super eagle’s performance at the world cup in Russia?
Bare your minds here.
