The Super Falcons of Nigeria has been ranked 10th out of 32 teams at the just concluded 2023 Women’s World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
The 2023 Women’s World Cup tournament came to an end on Sunday, August 20, 2023 with Spain recording a 1-0 victory against the Lionesses of England in the final to lift their first title.
The teams are ranked based on their performance at the tournament, but there is a twist.
Teams that were eliminated at the same stage are ranked based on the way they were knocked out.
This represents a stunning accomplishment for the falcons, as they are behind the United States of America (USA) and the highest among the African participants.
Nigeria emerged the highest-ranked team from Africa in the tournament with Morocco ranked 12th, reigning African champion South Africa 16th, and Zambia 25th.
