Musa Talle, Chairman of FCT Football Association (FA), on Wednesday in Abuja said he was confident that Nigeria would be the first African country to win the FIFA World Cup.

Bafana Bafana failed to qualify for the 2018 Fifa World Cup finals, with Senegal, who are now ranked first on the continent, securing their ticket to Russian Federation after finishing top of Group D log.

However, despite beating Argentina 4-2 in a high-grade worldwide friendly earlier this month, they are now eighth on the continent.

Nigeria occupied the 41st position in the last ranking.

The Democratic Republic of Congo remained fourth and Herve Renard-coached Morocco climbed two places to fifth after defeating the Ivory Coast to book a World Cup slot in Russian Federation.

They climbed nine places in the world since October to displace Tunisia as the number one national team in Africa.

The rise in volcanic activity in the months prior to the eruption prompted around 140,000 people to relocate to safer locations. The alert level remains at three after it was downgraded from the maximum level of four on October 29.

The Super Eagles are now ranked 8th in Africa after Senegal (23), Tunisia (27), Egypt (31), Congo DR (36), Morocco (40), Burkina Faso (44) Cameroon (45).

The top five remained unchanged with world champions Germany leading the way from Brazil, Portugal, Argentina and Belgium.

South Africa now find themselves in 81st position in the world ranking, and in 18th spot on the African continent.

Spain moved up to sixth, Poland are now seventh.

Ghana (51) and Ivory Coast (61) complete the 10 highest ranked nations in Africa, while Stuart Baxter's Bafana dropped further down the ranking following their two defeats against Senegal.
