The latest Fifa World Rankings for November, has revealed that Nigeria have moved to 31 st position in the world.
The reason for this latest development is that the three-time African champions had Back-to-back wins in their 2021 Afcon qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho, on 13 and 17, November.
The new position will obviously encourage the Super Eagles who dropped a place in October and will be a reward for their effort from their recent performance in their qualifying campaign for 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
Apart from the players, the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, also played a vital role to make sure that the Eagles get victory from a crucial comeback in a game that ended 2-1 in Uyo then they travelled to Maseru to beat the Crocodiles 4-2 in their second Group L game.
Ranked third in Africa, behind Senegal and Tunisia who occupy first and second place, Nigeria gathered 1493 points this month.
On December 19, the next Fifa rankings will be released.
