Kathmandu : Nepal men’s football team have ranked 174th in the latest FIFA ranking published by the world football governing body on Thursday.

This is one position up from the previous ranking, in which Nepal were at the 175th position. Apparently, Nepal winning the Prime Minister’s Three Nations Cup resulted in the upgrade although the final match was not counted as the official one.

Among their South Asian counterparts, India are at the top (101st). Likewise, the Maldives are also ahead of Nepal at the 154th.

Bhutan, Bangladesh and Pakistan are behind Nepal at 185th, 192nd and 195th positions respectively.

Meanwhile, Argentina have led the global ranking chart after six long years.
