Vietnam move to 99th place in FIFA ranking

Vietnam climbed one spot to rank 99th in FIFA's latest world ranking update.

The team led Southeast Asia and secured the 16th place in Asia. The progress was attributed to Vietnam's outstanding performance at the recent 2019 Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates where the team advanced to the quarterfinals and lost 0-1 to Japan.

This is the first time in 8 years Vietnam has reached the 99th place. The country's highest ever ranking was 98th in 1998 and 2003.
