As the heavyweight clash between Super Eagles of Nigeria and Bafana Bafana of South Africa draws closer, the position of Nigeria remains unchanged in the recently released FIFA ranking for the second consecutive month.
The team is positioned 40th in the world, while maintaining its 5th position in Africa.
Nigeria AFCON 2019 qualifying opponent, South Africa is ranked 64th in the world and 12th in Africa.
Nigeria will host South Africa in the first leg of the competition in June which might have little or no effect on the next FIFA ranking.
