India slips to 104th spot in latest FIFA ranking

ZURICH: The Indian football team on Thursday slipped a place to 104th position in the latest FIFA rankings.

The Indian team, coached by Igor Stimac, have been regularly playing since the 2019 Intercontinental Cup in July.

Earlier this month, India had held Asian champions Qatar to a goalless draw in Doha to gain their first point in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. The match was also a preliminary qualifier for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup.

India has been clubbed alongside Oman, Qatar, Bangladesh and Afghanistan in Group E of the second round World Cup Qualifiers.

Qatar held on to their ranking of 62nd position, despite not being able to beat India.

Oman, however, gained three places to 84th spot, following their 2-1 win over India. (AGENCIES)
