Amuneke: Eagles Have Progressed Despite Fall In FIFA Ranking

Amuneke: Eagles Have Progressed Despite Fall In FIFA Ranking

By Johnny Edward:
Former Super Eagles assistant coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has urged Nigerians not to be dismayed by the recent plummeting of the senior national team in the latest FIFA Coca-Cola World Ranking released on Thursday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Nigeria dropped nine places, from 41st to 50th position, losing 50 points from their previous 721 points to record 671 points for the month of November.


“We must not delve much on that (FIFA ranking),” Amuneke told Completesportsnigeria.com.

“The most important thing is that the team is improving, the ranking isn’t biased as many think because its down to points accumulated over the course of a period. We did well in the month under review defeating Argentina and drawing Algeria but how many points did Nigeria accumulate?.

“It could be suprising to see that the Super Eagles are behind Senegal, Tunisia, Egypt, Congo Democratic Republic, Morocco, Burkina Faso and Cameroon, but what matters most is which team is progressing with the aim of achieving their targets.”

The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on 21 December 2017.

  • For me am not bordered cos FIFA ranking is nothing to write home about.

  • Get out of here with your 419, you are not wanted here!

  • We unequivocally reject this fake FIFA ranking, we know the exact strength and rating of our beloved team and we say a big shame to FIFA for this unwarranted calculated attempt to demoralise our team. We declare that it will never work and it has failed from the beginning.

  • Let them continue with their dubious ranking while,we(Super Eagles)Soar higher.

  • Rubbish or call it Racist so called fifa style of humiliating African FA·s who are fantastically growing in the round leader game.
    What justification can fifa Submit – NONE . Nigeria won 4 and drew 2 in the African group of death at the WC qualifier to be the first Nation in Africa.
    Good we prepare very well to expect harsh officiating from the racist referees.
    Not even ONE Afrian Legend is invited among those for 1 December WC draw in Russia next week. That we beat Agentina in Russia should never draw Fifa Anger, if not what is the Criteria for moving Nigeria 9 places backward and @THENFF should shut their mouth not petitioning the rubbish decision?

  • FIFA must be smoking pot. Like WTF?! After the successful matches in the world Cup qualifiers? Friendly matches? This is total nonsense.. they should wait till the world Cup, and see more surprises from African nations of better still Nigeria

  • So beating Algeria and Argentina is now a sin abi
