Vietnam maintain top spot in Southeast Asia’s football: FIFA

FIFA announced the latest world rankings on September 17, with Vietnam remaining the highest-ranked team in Southeast Asia and staying 20 places clear of Thailand.



The latest FIFA rankings saw many changes as a series of international matches at the national team level took place in Europe early this month within the framework of the Nations League.

Given that fact, Asian teams also witnessed a slight change in their world rating despite having played no games. Accordingly, Thailand dropped one place to 114th in the world, while Park Hang-seo’s Vietnamese side retained their 94th position with 1,258 points.

In Asia, Vietnam stand at No. 14, six above Thailand. Japan continues to lead the continent as world No. 28, followed by world No. 30 Iran.

The next FIFA ranking is scheduled to be released on October 22./.
