- Falcons will campaign in the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France
Nigeria's Super Falcons have climbed to 38th position in the latest FIFA ranking which was released by the world football governing body on Friday, March 29.
Despite winning the African Women Cup of Nations in Ghana, Nigeria dropped one place in the last FIFA ranking.
But wins in six international friendlies in 2019 lifted them to 38th and remain top of the log in Africa.
Cameroon are occupying second position in Africa, South Africa are placed third while Ghana occupy fourth position.
And on the global scene, world champions USA and Germany retained the top two spots, while England climbed to third.
Meanwhile, the next Women's FIFA ranking will be on July 12 which is expected to be after the World Cup in France.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Barcelona completed the signing of Super Falcons striker Asisat Oshoala on a short term loan deal from Dalian Quanjian until the end of the ongoing season.
The three-time African women footballer of the year underwent medicals at the club earlier today before finally putting pen to paper with the Catalans.
While reacting to the dream move, Oshoala said that Barca are unarguable one of the best football clubs in the world, adding that she will be playing with some of the best players in the world.
