The Top 34 Rankings saw no change as Argentina, Brazil and Germany still holding the top 3 spot. Suriname are the best movers as they jumped 22 places from 150 to 128, just above India while Trinidad and Tobago(83), Mauritania(113), Afghanistan(151) & Bangladesh(190) were all the worst movers losing 5 positions.

AIFF’s target of being in Pot 2 for Asian Cup 2019 Qualifiers draw was achieved as the National side has kept on improving in its Ranking, despite playing zero friendly games since September.

The blue tiger’s win over then higher ranked side Puerto Rico combined with reduced values of points from World Cup qualifiers losses and perceptive shrewdness from our football board as ensured that the National side get an easy draw for the 2019 Asian Cup qualifiers.
