The next ranking will be released on December 21. With Fifa making it clear that it is against state involvement in football, the report suggests that the Peruvian team could be excluded from the World Cup as a result.

His cue was taken by Nigerians all over social media, and on television and radio.

According to Federation Internationale de Football Association, 32nd is in fact Ireland's average position since rankings began, so O'Neill can make the case that, even if they aren't going to Russia, Ireland are right where they are supposed to be. They are ranked 31st in the world, are third on the continent.

The Super Eagles finished 41st in October, after beating Zambia 1-0 to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

However, some consolation for Super Eagles fans would be that the current rankings count for little in the overall scheme of things, or at least not as important as they were last month.

Ghana's one-position jump comes on the back of a one-all draw against Egypt in the final round of the FIFA World Cup qualifier played at the China-built Cape Coast sports stadium.
