Vietnam dropped 4 spots to 102nd in FIFA’s every day rating replace after a heavy loss to Australia in a 2022 World Cup qualifier Thursday.
The 0-4 loss in Melbourne noticed Vietnam forfeit 9.46 factors and exit of the highest 100 for the primary time since they entered it in November 2018.
They’ll make a return in the event that they beat China of their subsequent World Cup qualifier in Hanoi on February 1.
A victory will fetch 15.47 factors and probably put them in 98th place.
A draw will earn them 2.97 factors whereas a loss will take away 9.53 factors and result in an additional rating slide.
China dropped one place to seventy fifth after a 0-2 loss to Japan in one other qualifier Thursday.
Each Vietnam and China are out of the race to qualify.
