Ogenyi Onazi has expressed dissatisfaction with the recent Fifa World ranking that placed the Super Eagles 50th in the World.

Nigeria’s current position means they are 8th in Africa after Senegal (23), Tunisia (27), Egypt (31), Congo DR (36), Morocco (40) , Burkina Faso (44) Cameroon (45).

This has not gone down well with the Trabzonspor midfielder who over the weekend, insisted that the three-time African champions deserved more.

Onazi, who missed the team’s last World Cup qualifier against Algeria and the 4-2 mauling of Argentina this month, said the ranking was not a true reflection of the team’s quality.

“I don’t know how this Fifa ranking thing works but it doesn’t matter whatever position we are ranked,”Onazi said.

“The current ranking is not a true reflection of the way things are. it’s just not fair we dropped despite the performances we put up in the qualifiers and even in the friendly match against Argentina.’’

Nigeria who made it to the World Cup with a game to spare, will know their World Cup foes on December 1.
