Pascal: Super Eagles Not Bothered By Drop In FIFA Ranking

Pascal: Super Eagles Not Bothered By Drop In FIFA Ranking

By Adeboye Amosu:
Super Eagles co-ordinator Patrick Pascal is unperturbed despite the team faring poorly in the latest FIFA world rankings, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.
The three-time African champions dropped nine places from 41st to 50th position in the latest ranking released by the world soccer ruling body on Thursday.
The team is also ranked in the eighth position in Africa behind countries like Senegal, Tunisia, Egypt, Congo Democratic Republic, Morocco, Burkina Faso and Cameroon.
It came as a shock to many following the Super Eagles’ impressive showing during the last international break during which the team played out a 1-1 draw against Algeria and recorded a 4-2 win against Argentina.
“I don’t read any meaning to the new rankings. For me, we should continue to do well on the pitch and the reward will surely come at the right time,” the former Super Eagles and Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan player told Completesportsnigeria. com.
“I expect us to do better next month and in the subsequent ones. We have a young team that is full of quality players and I don’t see any reason why we will not be ranked among the best in the next few months.”
The Super Eagles are one of the five teams that will represent Africa at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

    This fifa ranking is confusing, mayb d ranking was 4 october matches that’s y it didn’t reflect. By december, we would c d ranking 4 november bcos we played our matches dis month. By nxt month we would c d changes

  • Corrupt FIFA,Who Cares of their Caucacian ranking?To hell with them and their Caucacian manipulation.Up Super Eagles.

  • Pure racist ranking cos Nigeria thrashed her Agentina favourite in Russia friendly. Rubbish, that will never distract our WC prepairation to destroy their big teams at the WC proper.

  • Forget dat ranking

  • Fifa has a way of indirectly helping a nation. I see the wisdom in the latest ranking, putting Nigeria at 50 tumbling down all the way from 41!!!! This is Amaju Pinnick handwork. Smart guy. Amaju want other teams to under rate us and before they know it they have been sledgehammered. Messing under rated us because we were at 41 compared to their no 4. Others can do the job. He was about to enter the plane back to Barcelona when he was called back but before he could undress and lace his smart boot, it was at about 2min 45 seconds remaining. No need. So we should be praising Amaju Pinnick for the ranking but it will help us. We should see the good in this ranking. We will be paired with Russia with Iran and Iceland. Trust Amaju Pinnick to make things happen. Is it not next week Friday?
