Super Eagles drop six places in September FIFA rankings

Super Eagles drop six places in September FIFA rankings

Argentina dropped one spot in the world rankings and stood fourth with 1,325 points.

"I think what they check is the opponents a country plays, especially those that are more highly ranked than a country".

Federation Internationale de Football Association said the rankings to be published on Oct 16 would be used for the draw, which will take place in Moscow on Dec 1.

The last time Scotland made such a drastic move in the table was when they dropped 16 places to 52nd in 2015.

Meanwhile, Germany displaced Brazil to take the top spot.




The September rankings were published on Thursday and England, should they seal their place in next year's finals in their last two qualifying games, would be in the second pot, as they are now ranked 15th.

Cape Verde are the highest climbers, moving up 47 places to 67th after back-to-back victories over South Africa in September.

Switzerland are seventh, France eighth, Chile ninth and Colombia tenth.

Despite winning both of their qualifiers as well, England dropped down to 15th place in the world rankings, three spots behind Peru (12th).

Egypt remain the top ranked African nation in the world (25), while Tunisia (31) are now in second place after leapfrogging the Democratic Republic of Congo.
