The Super Eagles actually lost 6 points and only moved up because Tunisia lost 44 points. And they remain the lowest-ranked among their World Cup group rivals.

Argentina are the top-ranked team in Group F, dropping three places down to 6th in the world. Bosnia also lost ranking places, going down to 25th.

But Iran moved up 5 places to extend their leading position in the AFC.
