Vietnam climb world futsal ranking after qualifying for World Cup

After overcoming Lebanon in the Futsal World Cup playoffs, Vietnam have ascended on the world futsal ranking.

The futsal national team went up one place from 44th to 43rd, while Lebanon fell from 39th to 40th after losing the World Cup ticket to Vietnam.

At the World Cup playoffs, Vietnam drew 0-0 with Lebanon in the first leg and 1-1 in the second, but claimed the ticket due to away goal advantage. This is the second time Vietnam qualified for a Futsal World Cup tournament, with the first in 2016.
