Earlier today, the latest FIFA ‘Coca Cola’ Men’s World Ranking were released by the world football governing body and in the August rankings, India remain 104th behind New Zealand, but ahead of Madagascar; while Brazil retain their No. 1 spot.
India have 1199 points, the same as last month and they stay in 19th position of the Asian (AFC) rankings.
As India are currently banned by FIFA, it is unclear if India can play their September friendlies against Vietnam and Singapore.
In South Asia, India remain in top spot ahead of the Maldives (156th), Nepal (176th), Bhutan (186th), Bangladesh (192nd), Pakistan (196th) and Sri Lanka (207th) in what was another mixed month for the region.
There were no changes across the top 5. Brazil (1,838 points) stay ahead of Belgium (1,822 points), Argentina (1,771 pts), 2018 FIFA World Cup winners France (1,765 pts), and England (1,737 pts) to complete the top five.
