Eng­land & Nigeria rise up Fifa world rank­ings

The Kurdish Globe - - EDITORIAL -

Nigeria's Afcon vic­tory in South Africa and Eng­land's win over Brazil have helped both sides rise up Fifa's Fe­bru­ary world rank­ings, but the top-three sides re­main the same with Spain lead­ing the way, fol­lowed by Ger­many and Ar­gentina. Nigeria's third Africa Cup of Na­tions vic­tory, won two weeks ago, has seen the Su­per Ea­gles jump 22 places from 52nd to 30th place - their high­est rank­ing since Au­gust 2010. Eng­land, mean­while, have moved up from sixth spot to fourth fol­low­ing their im­pres­sive 2-1 friendly win over Brazil at Wem­b­ley last week.
