FIFA Ranking: Super Falcons fly high, remain Africa's reigning queens

Nigeria's Super Falcons remain the reigning queens of African football, despite their poor showing at the 2022 CAF Women's Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco. Despite finishing fourth in the tournament, the Falcons maintained their spot as the number one team in Africa, ahead of champions South Africa.

This is unsurprising, as the Super Falcons are the most successful team on the continent, and their dominance continues to shine through in the latest global ranking released by FIFA. They moved up three spots to 42nd, an impressive feat that puts them at least 12 rungs above South Africa (54), Cameroon (56), Ghana (59), and Cote d'Ivoire (64).

The United States still holds the top spot in the world, with Germany hot on their heels. Sweden, England, and France complete the top five, making for stiff competition on the global stage.

The Super Falcons will face tough opponents at the FIFA Women's World Cup, including Canada, ranked sixth in the world, and co-hosts Australia, who sit tenth. Despite this, Nigeria fares better than Northern Ireland, which occupy the 45th spot.

Overall, the Super Falcons continue to fly high as the most successful team on the continent, and their ranking in the global arena is a testament to their hard work, dedication, and undeniable talent. We look forward to seeing them soar to new heights in the upcoming tournaments.
