Levante forward Moses Simon says the recently released national team ranking for the month of October by FIFA is not a thing of worry for the Super Eagles of Nigeria who were ranked as the 4th best team in Africa.
Nigeria stood static at 44th position in the global ranking and on the continent they are behind Senegal, Tunisia and Morocco with Senegal now the highest ranked African nation thanks to their global placement of 23 among football nations.
Simon said players of the Super Eagles were expecting a better ranking mainly due to their unbeaten run following their exit at the World Cup in Russia but conceded that it really doesn’t matter on the pitch.
” There are teams ahead of us that can’t even get a coach against us. To be honest we know our position in Africa and it’s same globally and only on the pitch will people get to see it. No matter where we are ranked we will no doubt prove it against any team on the pitch “, Simon told Owngoalnigeria.com.
