India have slumped in the FIFA rankings ladder as they now find themselves in the 169th slot. However they continue to occupy the 32nd position in the continental rankings.
India have won the Nehru Cup last Sunday but still find themselves behind Maldives (159) and Nepal (166) who also participated in the All India Football Federation’s (AIFF) invitational tournament. Syria too have gone down in the ranking by a spot to be placed at 148 while Cameroon are at 61.
The matches against the African nation at the Nehru Cup weren’t considered for the FIFA rankings given that Cameroon had sent in a team comprising of players plying their trade in the local league only.
Japan are the highest Asian ranked nation at 23rd spot followed by Australia at 25 and South Korea at 27.
