The lack of inactivity for more than two months was the prime reason for the drop in places. 

The team is in action early next month in the FIFA Women's World Cup Qualifiers in Pyongyang. Their opponents include DPR Korea, Korea Republic, Uzbekistan and Hong Kong.

Incidentally all the teams save Hong Kong who are at 65 are ranked higher than the side, with DPR Korea at 10, Korea Republic at 17 and Uzbekistan at 42.
