Despite the sterling performances of the Super Eagles of Nigeria in recent matches, they have dropped nine places to 50th in the November FIFA ranking.
In October, the Super Eagles were ranked 41st in October, after beating Zambia 1-0 to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
But, despite thrashing Argentina 4-2 in an international friendly earlier this month, they are now eighth on the continent.
Senegal is number one in Africa followed by Tunisia, Egypt, Congo and Morocco respectively.
