Five-time world champions Brazil-who became the first team from South America to qualify for the 2018 World Cup-remains top in the global rankings followed by arch rivals Argentina who have so far endured a tough qualifying campaign.

India had clinched a 1-0 victory over Myanmar in the AFC Asian Cup qualifiers on March 28 - the first ever win in Myanmar in over 64 years. "AIFF has been providing the National Team with the best of exposure and facilities and we expect the Team to keep up the good work".

One more victory against an worldwide side - 4-1 win over South American opponent Puerto Rico - added another feather to India's cap.

Although the Indian team did not play any matches during official Federation Internationale de Football Association dates in April, the one spot rise came about due to African nation Malawi dropped a staggering 42 points since the last world rankings were announced.

While the Blue Tigers will not play any matches this month, they are set to go up in arms against Lebanon and Kyrgyzstan in June, in the AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers UAE 2019. India is the 11th highest placed team in Asia in the rankings. Head coach Stephen Constantine congratulated his side on the milestone, but warned them against complacency ahead of important matches.
