Nigeria failed to move up in the latest rankings released by FIFA on Thursday the super eagles still ranked 43rd in the world.
The country didn't move up on the log and the team is still ranked the 10th best team in Africa , starting the year with 654 points.
It was not only Nigeria which failed to make a move on the table most teams didn't because of the break that ensured national teams were dormant from the period of the last ranking.
However, The Super Eagles are most likely to fall below on rankings after they fail to qualify for the next African cup of nations AFCON in Zambia as other teams are expected to capitalize on it and move up.
In Africa Algeria retains the top position with Tunisia and Ivory Coast coming second and third respectively. World rankings remains the same with world cup winners Germany still on top, also on the list is world cup finalist Argentina and Colombia coming second and third on the log respectively
