NFF to Unveil Super Eagles World Cup Kits in London

NFF President Pinnick in a handshake with Gernot Rohr after the contract extension

The Super Eagles of Nigeria retained the 51st position in the world in the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, released by the world football governing body on Thursday.

Sometimes it has a positive effect while in other instances a negative effect like the English team to the 2006 World Cup who crashed out and their spouses were said to have cost the country.

With just 22 matches played (none by Nigeria), all friendlies, since the December edition, Federation Internationale de Football Association said it is no surprise to see few significant changes in the first ranking of 2018.

Tunisia, Senegal, Egypt, Morocco and Congo DR are the top five teams in Africa in that order.

The Super Eagles World Cup major opponents Argentina have been following the team's progress in the tournament. Croatia stepped up to 15th, while Iceland moved two places to 20th.

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr revealed that his players are allowed to come to the 2018 FIFA World Cup with their wives and girlfriends.

The next ranking will be published on February 15, 2018. "We want our players to have the best frame of mind while at the World Cup without distractions", concludes the coach.

Pinnick also confirmed that the Super Eagles will take on England at Wembley on June 2, before traveling to Austria for another warm-up match against Czech Republic on June 6.

You would recall that while 52 players were invited by Sunday Oliseh, the 64-year old throughout Nigeria's qualifying campaign, albeit, only 34 got game time.
