Korea move up 3 spots to 59th in Nov. FIFA rankings


The Super Eagles of Nigeria have dropped nine places to 50th on the monthly Federation Internationale de Football Association world rankings released Thursday, Nov 23.

Earlier this year Poland were No. 5 in the FIFA table - the best result for the Polish team since the world football governing body's ranking was launched in 1992.

It is the national team's worst ranking since Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim became FAM president in March, and matched the country's worst-ever position of No 174 reached in April and May previous year.

This is despite defeating Argentina 4-2 in a recent friendly some days back. They are four places ahead of England who drop from 12th to 15th.

The Senegalese national team has been ranked the 23rd and that is the highest they have been placed in their history so far.
