Vietnam remains in FIFA top 100

The national men’s football team of Vietnam remains in FIFA's top 100, according to the Vietnam Football Federation.

The Golden Dragons are in the 97th spot in the FIFA ranking with 1,219 points.

A 2-0 victory over Afghanistan in a friendly match held on June 1 has helped Vietnam gain 3.46 points. However, it was not enough for the team to advance in the rankings because its closest rivals such as Palestine and Kyrgyzstan had very good performances in the 2023 Asian Cup Third Qualifier.
