HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam's national men's football team jumped fourteen places on FIFA's newest ranking table, finishing at 144th.

This new ranking comes as a bit of a surprise, since Viet Nam did not show well in the Asian Qualifying Round matches in November when it lost its fourth and fifth matches of the Group E to be rooted at the bottom of the group without a single point.

In other Southeast Asian rankings, Thailand fell four places to the 146th position, and Singapore gained four places, moving up to 149th place.

Meanwhile, Viet Nam's national women's football team remained in 28th place, as well as first place in Southeast Asia. Thailand ranked 32nd to remain second in the region. — VNS
