Argentina retains its number one spot with Germany coming in second, Brazil, third and Belgium occupying the fourth position.

The upward bump in the Super Eagles’ ranking is largely due to their wins against Zambia in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and Tanzania in the 2017 AFCON qualifiers.

African champions, Cote d’Ivoire are still the highest ranked team in Africa, moving up three places to the 31st position on the global ranking.
