Nepal drop down 8 places in FIFA ranking

FIFA Ranking

Kathmandu, June 24

Nepal have dropped down in the FIFA ranking by eight places.

In the recently updated FIFA ranking, Nepal are ranked 176 in the world. The football team’s ranking in March was 168.

This comes after Nepal lost all its games in the recently concluded Asian Cup Qualifiers in Kuwait. Nepal lost 2-0 to Jordan, 4-1 to Kuwait and 7-0 to Indonesia. These three losses seem to have had a direct effect on the FIFA ranking.

Nepal dropping down eight places in the ranking is the worst since 2014 when it dropped down 17 places.

Among South Asian nations, India are ranked 104 and the Maldives are ranking 156. Bhutan, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are below Nepal at 186, 192, 196 and 207 positions respectively.
