In the regional rankings, Việt Nam ranked third in Southeast Asia, behind Thailand, world No 117, and the Philippines, which dropped five places to No 120 in the world.

In Asia, Iran maintained their spot as the leading team, followed by South Korea and Japan.

The world top 10 did not change much. Argentina are still on top, followed closely by Belgium and Colombia. — VNS
