Super Eagles tumble to 50th despite big win over Argentina — FIFA RANKINGS

However, the latest thoroughly confusing coefficient quirk has seen England drop three places to 15th after drawing with both Germany and Brazil this month, while Italy - who, as you may recall, spectacularly failed to qualify for the World Cup recently - have risen one rung to leapfrog Gareth Southgate's side into 14th place.

Having leaped from 44th to 41st spot in the rankings last month, a similar or greater leap was expected for the Nigerian team as they recently drew 1-1 at Algeria in a World Cup qualifier and defeated two-time World Cup winners, Argentina 4-2 in an worldwide friendly. Shin's side beat Colombia 2-1 on November 10 and played to a 1-1 draw with Serbia four days later.

Meanwhile, Senegal replaces Tunisia as Africa's highest ranked country at number 23 and 27 respectively.

Preparations have already kicked off for Russian Federation 2018 as the Super Eagles faced Argentina in a friendly game during the last worldwide break. Morocco (40), 6. Burkina Faso (44), 7.

South Africa now find themselves in 81st position in the world ranking, and in 18th spot on the African continent.

North Korea says U.S. terror sponsor label a 'serious provocation'
As Trump said, the decision reaffirms the U.S. government's commitment to imposing maximum pressure on the Pyongyang government. But North Korea is unlikely to give in to the sanctions and come back to the negotiation table anytime soon.
