Ireland Drop In FIFA Rankings As Northern Ireland Hit Highest Position Ever

The Philippine men's national football team took a big leap in the most recent FIFA World Football Rankings, jumping to 123rd in the world as of September 14th, 2017. European champion Portugal is up three places to No. 3, while Argentina fell one to No. 4 and Belgium climbed four places to No. 5.

Meanwhile, India lost 10 places to be ranked No. 107 in the latest Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings that were published on Thursday.

The last time Scotland made such a drastic move in the table was when they dropped 16 places to 52nd in 2015.

That ranking is the highest-ever for Syria.

Poland, Switzerland, France, Chile and Colombia make up the rest of the leading 10.

In the CECAFA region, Uganda remained the best placed, followed by Kenya who slipped by six places becoming 88th in the world.

This would avoid another controversy which emerged in 2014 when the November rankings were used, which critics said gave an advantage to teams involved in that month's play offs. Spain 12. Peru 13.

The committee also confirmed the World Cup qualifying match played between South Africa and Senegal in November previous year must be replayed in the November global window.
