On Thursday, the men’s football team of India moved up five places to 101st in the latest FIFA rankings after attaining victories over Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan in the recent tri-nation tournament. Last month in Imphal, the victories over Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan by 1-0 and 2-0 respectively gave India 8.57 points and five spots up from last year’s ranking of 106. The nation is just one place away from the Top 100.
