Where are the haters who open threads to complain about how SE goes down in FIFA rankings.

Thanks to 2 straight wins, something neither Algeria, Morocco, Senegal, Egypt , or Ghana could achieve we have moved up to #3 in Africa.

- Senegal (22nd)
- Tunisia (26th)
- Nigeria (32nd)
- Algeria (33rd)
- Morocco (34th)

We moved up 4 places from #36 to #32.

Nigeria is currently the most dangerous team in Africa. If there is no wuru wuru at this nations cup, we will win it easily. None of the teams can match our fire power. We are not too solid on defense but we can defend when we have to. Our midfield is as good as any on the continent.

Only Algeria come close. But they wont get another own goal from Ekong and a fantastic last minute free kick from mahrez to beat us this time.

And who were those joining the celebration? :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Excellent news and credit to Rohr. But when we see stuff that the team is not doing right we will still point it out. However we won't start supporting Ivory Coast instead and disappear for months because the coach we criticised won.

I think Nigeria is on the cusp.
It’s a really settled side with a good system of cycling out ageing players without disrupting the balance of the side.
It has a back 6 that have now played with each other for almost 5 years and a forward line that has real tournament experience.
The team can flex to meet the occasion - 343, 4141, 433, 352, 442.
And in Ndidi it has one of the best players in his position anywhere on the planet.

We’re in for a treat.

Only if the manager believes it. I'm not always convinced that he does.

If Nigeria retains its top 5 ranking on the continent, its inevitable they WILL have to face off with one of the countries ranked outside of the top 5, which could mean any one of the countries you listed (provided there is no major upset in the second round qualifiers).

Are we now to be more afraid of those countries outside the top five than those within it?
If we had a low ranking, we'd have to meet and knock out a top 5 team unavoidably.
I don't get ANC's logic. :blink:

So you rather we face Algeria, Senegal, Morocco ?

So long as we win most of our next 6 qualifying games and qualify of course we will be top 5.

I only worry about Ivory Coast, should they get past Cameroon which I fully expect them to do. They have a lot of talent, and if it all comes together at the perfect time, it will be tough for us to beat them.

Anyways I hope some of the favoured teams like Egypt and Tunisia get knocked out so somehow Ivory Coast can make top 5.

I hear you, but don't forget Ivory Coast are the Netherlands of Africa. They know how to choke even with an abundance of talent as they currently have.

The Last time Cameroon and CIV were in the same WC group the SE failed to qualify. Also the SE failed to qualify after making it to 3 straight worldcup, also , they finished 3rd in the AFCON and like dejavu it is falling into place gradually. 2006 is starting to look like 2022

Although the ranking is crap, I do not feel that Nigeria would be afraid of any African country, including Algeria or even a country ranked #7. Fact is that Nigeria against any of those top African countries will be a toss up. It is a matter of mutual respect. Bet on it.

The fact of the matter is, Nigeria stand a better chance against the like of Algeria, Morocco and even Senegal to some extent.
I remember ANC 2000, when I was so sure Nigeria would beat Cameroon, a Cameroonian school mate was confidently sure the game would turn out otherwise.

Nigeria should not wish to face Ghana or Cameroon with a WC ticket on the line, not at least with the current crop of players.

Group A: Algeria #4
Group B: Tunisia #2
Group C : Nigeria #3
Group D : Cameroon/CIV #8/#10
Group E : Mali #9
Group F : The Pharaohs# 6
Group G: Ghana#7
Group H: Senegal# 1
Group I : Morocco #5
Group J: Dr Congo #11


Fifa ranking
1, Senegal
2, Tunisia
3, Nigeria
4, Algeria
5, Morocco


6, Egypt
7, Ghana
8, Cameroon
9, Mali
10, CIV
11, DRC

Bottom half: Nigeria can comfortably beat only two the teams (DRC and Mali).
Top half: Nigeria can comfortably beat 3 and 1/2 teams (algeria, morocco and Tunisia).

WC ticket is far from being assured

I'm glad you and your friend remembered the 2000 ANC game against Cameroon but don't remember the more recent 2017 WC qualifier against them. As for Ghana, good luck counting on them to pick the WC ticket ahead of us. You must have forgotten how they were jubilating with us after we beat them in Port Harcourt in 2001 to pick the WC ticket .
