The Indian national football team have jumped up two spots from September's 107th rank in the FIFA international team standings and are currently 105th in the latest rankings after their latest triumph over Macau in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 qualifiers.
This is currently one of India's lowest ranking in this calendar year as they previously featured in the top 100 ranked teams for four months in a row. India are currently at 328 ranking points which means they are ahead of Niger, Georgia, New Zealand and Korea DPR.
With this ranking, India has now fallen behind Lebanon, Mauritania, Kenya, Madagascar and Zimbabwe who occupy the rankings 101-104.
India qualified for the AFC Asian Cup 2019 on 11th October when they thrashed Macau 4-1 and the signs are looking quite positive for the Indian national football team going ahead.
At the top of the FIFA rankings, there was no change to be observed in the top six teams with Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Belgium and Poland leading the way while Spain made it into the top 10, which, most importantly will be considered in December's FIFA World Cup 2018 draw.
