Nigeria has moved up three places to 33 in the latest world rankings released by FIFA on Thursday.
However, Nigeria is still number four in the Africa, behind Algeria (3rd) who dropped three places, Ghana (2nd), who moved up one place and Cote d’Ivoire (1st), who has moved to 17th in the world.
The October ranking saw the Eagles garner 724 points which is an improvement from the 707 points recorded in September.
The Nigerians are expected to improve their rankings by next month when they host Ethiopia in a World Cup playoff return leg in Calabar.
