latest Fifa Ranking. (http://www.fifa.com/en/mens/statistics/index/0,2548,All-Jan-2006,00.html)

SAAF Ranking:

India: 118
Maldives: 133
Bangladesh: 143
Sri-Lanka: 145
Pakistan: 158

Kazakhstan: 137
laughable Fifa ranking. Kazakhstan can give any SAAF team a real beating (ek hali'r nichey na). Recently Kazakhstan lost to Denmark 1-2.

Tajikistan: 141

Other Southeast Asian Countries:
Singapur: 92
Thailand: 109
Indonesia:110
Hong Kong: 117
Myanmar: 148 strange!!

Great teams:
Japan and Iran in the top 20. Korea Rep 29, Saudi 33, Iraq 54. Turkey 11 but not in the WC. Mexico dropped to 7 tied with USA.

India 153
Maldives 156
Sri Lanka 161
Pakistan 169
Nepal 177
Afghanistan 181
Bangladesh 182
Bhutan 190

Now the reality is there for u to see. Bangla is the second lowest ranked country in the region. Only Bhutan is ranked below us. We may joke or laugh. Guys pls open up your eyes. The ranking is not based on population or pride. Its based on RESULTS. We may remember the days when our team was able to beat Maldives 8-0. Thats all history now. Guys, do u remember the days when England was able to beat France 18-0? When Portugal was able to beat Brazil 12-0? Those are also part of history now. Can we beat Maldives by 8 goals to nill now? In your right mind u will say no. We won 2003 SAFF cup by beating Maldives on Penalties. We were not able to beat them in open play for 120 minutes. That was in Dhaka in front of us. Not in their country. So whats the point of remembering a distant memory now? C'mon guys! Lets work hard to catch those who are above now. Thats not an impossible thing to do.

According to FIFA site,
India remained where they were at 153.
Maldives moved up three places. Even before SAFF cup they were second in the region.
Sri Lanka moved up one place.
Pakistan is nine place down.
Nepal is one place up.
Afghanistan is one place up.
Bangla is one place up. I dont know why
Bhutan is six places up. They made most gains

Bangladesh up 8 places.

Only Nepal ahead of us in South Asia.

We are not as much a loser as we used to be. But still a lose - a nation of 150M+ and a ranking in the triple digits.

That's not bad at all. And with the age group teams and the national team practicing with the russians, we should continue to improve in rankings.

The only way to improve on the ranking is to play regularly.

BFF should have an annual international tournament on its calender, comprising of 5-6 teams.
Nothing beats international exposure at the highest level, on a regular basis that is.

We could have easily avoided the 0-4 drubbing at Beirut had the boys had some experience and would have now found ourselves amongst the top 20 of Asia !! Our ranking would have been within 120 as well !!

Just a little planning and vision should have done it.
The fixture was known to BFF a long time ago. They failed to act on it.
