The Indian football team has climbed up a place to occupy 155th spot in the latest FIFA rankings released today.
Earlier in July, India had dropped 15 positions to 156th place after two successive defeats in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. India were recently held to a goalless draw by Nepal in an international friendly match in Pune.
They will now take on Iran in a World Cup qualifier in Bengaluru on September 8. Meanwhile, Copa America runners-up Argentina continued to be at the top ahead of Belgium, in second position, and third-placed World Champions Germany.
Colombia and five-time world champions Brazil are in the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.
