What is known and call a “boardroom” defeat has actually led Nigeria into a nose diving situation as the country drop one place to ninth (9th) in the world football body FIFA Africa rankings for this month of December which was made public and released Thursday (today) December 21, 2017.

Nigeria, from reports, had made a 1-1 World Cup qualifying draws in Algeria in November which was changed to a 3-0 defeat by the world governing football body, FIFA officials just after they fielded the suspended Abdullahi Shehu.

The result and outcome, however, didn’t make any effect on the very final standings with Nigeria finishing at five (5) ahead and over and above Zambia with Cameroon coming third and Algeria taking the last position.
