I know a fourteenth, that few know:
If I tell a troop of warriors
About the high ones, elves and gods,
I can name them one by one.

Unlike their male counterparts, the Super Eagles who have been toppled by less fancied African teams in FIFA and CAF rankings, African women champions, the Super Falcons of Nigeria, have climbed three places in the year end Fifa ranking for women.



The Nigerian women are in the 32nd position in the global ranking compared to the last quarter that they occupied the 35th position.

Conversely, the Eagles that were in 42 in November, dropped to 43 in the latest year end FIFA rankings thus ending the year outside the top 40 teams in the world.

The Falcons who are World Cup bound, are the top team in Africa followed by Ghana, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and South Africa in that order.

Nigeria?s rivals at the Women?s World Cup ? United States, Sweden and Australia ? are ranked 2nd, 5th and 10th respectively.

Germany, USA, France, Japan and Sweden, who will all feature at next year?s tournament in Canada, are the top five countries in the world.

The next world ranking will be published by the official website of Fifa, fifa.com, on 27 March 2015.
