New Delhi: In a major embarrassment, India have dropped a whopping 10 places to 155th spot in the latest FIFA rankings, issued on Thursday.

The FIFA rankings added salt to India's wounds, a day after the country failed to defend its SAFF Cup title, losing 0-2 to Afghanistan in Kathmandu.

Wim Kovermans-coached India have 143 points in its kitty in the updated list. By virtue of the lone international title, war-torn Afghanistan have climbed up seven places to the 132nd position.
