FIFA Ranking: India dips 10 places to 107

New Delhi, Sept 14 (UNI) In the latest edition of the FIFA Rankings, the Indian national football team have slipped 10 rungs to 107th position.

Two months earlier, the Blue Tigers achieved one of their best rankings in recent history when they climbed to the 96th spot. But they dropped a spot to 97th in the previous month's edition. But despite winning the Tri-Series tournament against Mauritius and St. Kitts & Nevis with a draw and a win and even a win against 182nd ranked Macau did not help them retain their position inside top 100 ranks.

Probable rationale can be the fact that the opponents were of significantly lower stature than India. India's ranking deteriorated after countries like Estonia (up 14 places), Finland (up 23 places), Iraq (up 14 places) Luxembourg (up 35 places) and Macedonia (up 32 places) rocketed ahead. The Blue Tigers now have 316 rating points, a drop of 25 points from their previous month's tally.
