Nigeria have continued to make progress in the Fifa monthly ranking as the Super Eagles are now ranked fifth in Africa and 40th in the World.

According to the latest ranking released on Thursday, Nigeria moved two places from seventh to fifth in Africa and one place from 41st to 40th in the world ranking.

The Super Eagles played out a 1-1 draw with Senegal last month and were to take Burkina Faso after that but the game was cancelled due to visa issues that affected the Etalons.

Brazil are the new number one team on the planet usurping bitter rivals Argentina while Egypt are top dogs in Africa.
