Super Falcons moved three places in the latest FIFA Rankings released on Friday as the nine-time African Champions moved from 45th position in December to the 42nd position.
Its recent 1-0 win over Costa Rica at the Revelation Cup which ended Randy Waldrum’s match-winless streak can be attributable to the steady rise.
Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon also moved two places from the 58th to 56th position in the world and third in Africa.
Cameroon played two games at the FIFA World Cup Playoff Tournament winning the first against Thailand (2-0) before a 2-1 loss to Portugal which ensured that the team won’t feature in this year’s World Cup.
African Champions, South Africa maintained its 54th spot in the world and second in Africa.
Black Queens of Ghana also retained its 59th position in the world and fourth in Africa.
Other movers in Africa’s top ten ranked women’s football teams include Ivory Coast (64, +1), Equatorial Guinea (71, +1), Morocco (73, +3), Tunisia (76, +2), and Zambia (77, +4).
Algeria maintained its 80th position in the world and tenth in Africa.
