The Philippines stay put as the top football nation in Southeast Asia, according to the latest edition of the FIFA Rankings
The Philippine Azkals continue to rise in the FIFA World Rankings, coming it at a spot higher at 124 in the latest edition released October 20.
This comes even after the Philippine national team dropped two straight friendly matches to Bahrain and DPR Korea earlier this month.
With the move up in rankings, the Philippines remains as the top-ranked football nation in Southeast Asia, followed by Vietnam, placed at 136th.
The Philippine Azkals will have a chance to prove that they belong on top of the Southeast Asian rankings and move up even higher as they participate in one more friendly match against Kyrgyzstan on November 9th, before entering the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup beginning on the 19th.
