Indian Football Team Gains Two Places in FIFA Rankings
 
(New Delhi, Oct 16, 2017): A week after qualifying for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, the Indian football team on Monday received a boost in FIFA rankings moving up two places to be at the 105th spot.

The ‘Blue Tigers’ were ranked 107th last month but they are now at 105th in the latest rankings, courtesy their win over Macau in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 qualifiers last week.

With 328 ranking points, India are just a rung below Zimbabwe and one spot above Niger.
Among the Asian Football Confederation countries, India are at 14th spot.

The 4-1 win over Macau on October 11 saw India qualify for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in the UAE. Last week, India secured their passage into the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates with a thumping 4-1 win against minnows Macau at the Sree Kanteerava stadium in Bengaluru.

A fourth straight win in Group A saw the ‘Blue Tigers’ cement a top-2 finish in the qualifying round along with a berth in the main draw of the second oldest continental football championship in the world. India last played in the tournament in 2011 when they qualified after winning the AFC Challenge Cup. This is India’s fourth qualification after 1964, 1984 and 2011.
