  • S. Korea falls 2 spots to 51st in FIFA rankings for Sept.

Nigeria's Super Eagles failed to maintain their world ranking despite their impressive 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon earlier this month.

This means hosts Russian Federation, now ranked 64th, and the world's top seven teams will be in the first pot for the draw in the Kremlin on December 1, with the remaining 24 teams divided equally into three more pots, according to their ranking.

That ranking is the highest-ever for Syria.

Stanley Okumbi's charges have dropped to position 88 with 400 points from the 82nd spot they occupied last month.

Germany returned to the number one spot ahead of Brazil, while Portugal and Argentina occupy the third and fourth place respectively.

Florida Governor Rick Scott updates Irma recovery
There are widespread water and power outages, and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authorities issued a precautionary boil water notice. FEMA officials estimated that 25 percent of homes were completely destroyed , while another 65 percent suffered serious damage.

European teams, who each played two qualifiers, gained on their South American rivals and could have six of the eight seeded positions at the World Cup.

England were not the only home nation to fall in the world rankings, as Ireland fell five places to 34th.

And the top 10 CAF zone teams on Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings are led by Egypt (30), Tunisia (31), Senegal (33), and DR Congo (42) while Zambia's next 2018 Group B qualifier opponents away on October 7, Nigeria, are 5th and 44th in the World.

Nigeria's only rival to next year's World Cup, Zambia, are still a lowly 78th in the world and 16th in Africa.
