Malaysia retains 168th spot in latest FIFA rankings

Malaysia have retained the 168th spot on the latest FIFA ranking that was released earlier today.

Two months ago, the Malayan Tigers were ranked 162 in the world. But having drawn 1-1 with Timor Leste before suffering an embarassing 6-0 defeat at the hands of Palestine last June, they inevitably dropped to 168 last month.

Considering that no competitive games were played in July, Malaysia’s position remains unperturbed for the time being, though things could change when they host Bangladesh in an international friendly clash later this month.

Meanwhile, Iran remain the highest ranked Asian team on spot number 41, with South Korea coming second at 54 and Japan coming third at 56.

Argentina continued to top the FIFA rankings, though Belgium have moved one spot to occupy second place. As a result, Germany are now third, with Colombia fourth and Brazil fifth.

The best mover of the month was Jamaica, who moved 21 spots to number 55 on the rankings. The worst mover on the other hand, was Serbia, who dropped 23 spots to be ranked 66th currently.
