Super Falcons of Nigeria soar to new heights in the latest 2023 FIFA Ranking


The Super Falcons of Nigeria has been recognised as the best African women's team in the 2023 ranking by the football governing body, FIFA.

Following an eventful, memorable and remarkable outing at the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023, the Super Falcons of Nigeria have been duly recognised for their efforts in the competition in the 2023 ranking released by the football governing body, FIFA.

The Falcons are now the 10th-best women's team in the world, maintaining a position over football giants such as Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Italy, and others after they maintained an impressive run in the recently concluded competition, which was held in Australia and New Zealand.

Although other African countries progressed to the round of 16 like Nigeria did, the Super Falcons were recognised for their doggedness in this round of the competition as well as their overall play in the group stages against countries that were ranked ahead of them.

This is a recognition the women deserve for the efforts put in towards the competition amidst the uncertainty that surrounded the team in the early stages of the competition and the absence of the payment of their wages since 2021.

Here is the ranking below:

  1. Spain
  2. England
  3. Sweden
  4. Australia
  5. Japan
  6. France
  7. The Netherlands
  8. Colombia
  9. The USA
  10. Nigeria
