Former African champions, the Super Eagles, remained static on FIFA world ranking for December.
The Nigerian side held on to the 44th spot with 1427 points and are ranked fourth on the continent behind Senegal, Tunisia and Morocco.
Nigeria is billed to play a dead rubber Afcon 2019 qualifier against Seychelles in March next year.
Meanwhile, Belgium will begin 2019 at the top of the World Ranking, having preserved their single-point lead over France at the table’s summit and emerged as the Ranking’s “Team of the Year”.
The Les Bleus’ stellar 2018 does not go unrecognised though, with the world champions established as the year’s “Best Mover”, having gained more points (165) since December 2017 than any other nation.
The French lead that particular table from Uruguay (7th, unchanged) and Kosovo (131st, unchanged), who have registered net gains of 151 and 133 points respectively.
The next FIFA World Ranking is slated for February 7, 2019.
