The Indian football team has dropped 10 places to 107 in the latest FIFA ranking.  The Sunil Chhetri-led side registered two victories and a draw in three matches after they were placed at the 97th spot in August.

India had achieved one of their best rankings in recent history when the men in blue climbed the ladder to reach the 96th position two months earlier.

India defeated Mauritius and held Saint Kitts and Nevis to a draw to clinch the Tri-nation football series before defeating Macau in an away fixture in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualification third round. 

India have dropped below the 100th spot for the first time since May. 

 

With World Cup qualifiers, the teams have been raking up and dropping points which has led to the replacement of rankings.
