NFF Reacts As Super Falcons Crash Out Of World Cup

The Super Falcons of Nigeria dropped in FIFA’s women’s national team ranking but retained their number one spot in African women’s football.

The Super Falcons recently qualified for the last phase of the 2024 Olympics qualifiers after beating the Cameroon women’s national team in Abuja, following a 1-1 draw in Cameroon.

But that has not positively influenced their position in the world ranking according to the recent ratings FIFA released on Saturday, March 16, 2024.

Based on the world football governing body’s latest ranking, the Super Falcons moved two steps backward, from the 32nd spot to the 34th spot.
