The Indian national football team have hit a 21-year high in the FIFA rankings as the Men In Blue have broken into the top 100. In the rankings released for the month of May earlier today, the Indian national football team find themselves positioned 100, one place above their April ranking of 101st.
This amounts to a momentous achievement for Stephen Constantine’s team, who, although not playing a single game in April, have jumped above Malawi to find themselves in exotic territory.
The Blue Tigers ranked 101st in the FIFA rankings for April, a 72-place jump from being 173rd in March 2015. The Sunil Chhetri side last hit the top 100 in February 1996, when they were ranked an all-time high of 94.
