Pakistan ranked 170 in FIFA rankings
Afghanistan (130) and India (155) is raked above Pakistan while Bangladesh (173) and Sri Lanka (184) are below. However there is no change at the top of the ranking, with Argentina (1st, unchanged) on 1,442 points continuing to lead the way ahead of Belgium (2nd, unchanged) and Germany (3rd, unchanged), says a press release issued here.
Chile (8th, up 2) are the only team to have made significant movement in the top ten, and they are now in their highest-ever position since the revision of the world ranking in 2006. England (10th, down 2), however, have fallen two places, whereas both Austria (13th, up 1) and Congo (42nd, up 1) are in their best positions since 1993.
The other teams that have climbed at least five places include Georgia (147th, up 7), Panama (59th, up 6), Cuba (113th, up 6), the Dominican Republic (123rd, up 6), Armenia (83rd, up 5) and Nicaragua
(139th, up 5). Three teams - Rwanda (78th, up 13), Guatemala (98th, up 10) and Fiji (181st, up 17) - have even made gains of at least ten places.
The composition of the top 50 for September 2015 also shows precious little change, with Egypt (49th, up 3) the only newcomer in this group at the expense of the Republic of Ireland (51st, down 1) and the Cape Verde Islands (56th, down 6), who have both dropped out of last month's "top 51".
A total of 15 new international "A" matches have been taken into account for this edition of the ranking, all of them friendly matches in the CONCACAF (1 match), Asia (10), Africa (2) or Oceania
The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on October 1.
