CAF President Knocks FIFA Rankings, Rates Super Eagles As Best Team In Africa


President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Ahmad Ahmad has aimed a tiny veiled dig at the recently released FIFA ranking which placed Nigeria as the 5th best football nation in Africa.


The Super Eagles of Nigeria are currently behind Tunisia, Egypt, Senegal and Congo DR, although they moved three places in the global ratings from 44 to 41st in the world.

Ahmad speaking in Lagos after a meeting with football stake holders in Nigeria said Nigeria is the strongest team from Africa going to the World Cup, hence much is expected of the Super Eagles in Russia next year.

“No doubt, Nigeria is the strongest African team going to Russia and we expect so much from the Super Eagles, Amaju (Pinnick) has been spot-on in at least two major decisions this year: to support the change at CAF and to get the Nigerian fraternity to work assiduously towards Nigeria’s qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.” He said.
