The 2023 AFC Asian Cup proved to be a challenging campaign for the Indian Football Team, as they faced a series of setbacks, succumbing to three consecutive defeats without securing a single triumph throughout the competition. Their struggle was further accentuated by the inability to score in any of the group-stage matches. As a consequence of their underwhelming performance, India experienced a significant decline in their FIFA ranking, witnessing a drop of 15 places and a loss of 35.57 points. Remarkably, they now holds the record for the highest FIFA ranking point loss among all AFC Asian Cup teams. The team’s ranking, which stood at 102 before the tournament, took a sharp downturn to a disappointing 117, marking their lowest position since 2017—a stark contrast to their peak at 96 in that year.

Additional defeats to Uzbekistan and Syria played a role in their descent, with India falling to 111 after the Uzbekistan match and experiencing a further drop of six places following the loss to Syria. The overall decline of 15 places highlights the considerable setback they faced in the tournament.
