The current African champions Super Eagles Nigeria have climbed up three places to 33 in the latest world rankings released Thursday by FIFA.

However, despite the move, Nigeria are still fourth in the Africa ranking behind Algeria(3rd) who dropped three places, Ghana (2nd), who moved up one place and Cote d?Ivoire (1st), who have moved up on a place to 17th in the world.

The October ranking saw the Eagles garner 724 points which is an improvement from the 707 points of the September rankings.

They are expected to improve their rankings by next month when they host Ethiopia in a World Cup playoff return leg in Calabar.

Spain remain first in the world with Argentina, Germany, Italy, Colombia, Belgium, Uruguay, England, Netherlands and Switzerland completing the top 10 in the world.
