A 2-0 victory over Afghanistan on June 1 helped the Vietnamese men’s football team gain 3.46 points to take 95th place in the FIFA rankings with 1,218.84 points.
The team also rejoined Asia's top 15 group after being dropped out due to two consecutive losses to China and Oman in the third round of 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Meanwhile, Thailand still maintained its 111th position in the rankings following a win over Turkmenistan and a loss to Bahrain.
However, Vietnam’s position is not guaranteed, as Thailand and Kyrgystan, which is in the 96th spot in the world ranking, will take part in the qualifiers for the 2023 Asian Cup, which will take place in June.
Vietnam has already qualified for this tournament. The Vietnamese team will not play any games in the coming time except for AFF Cup 2022, to be held in December.
Vietnam still retains the top spot in Southeast Asia, followed by Thailand and the Philippines.
