    We paid the price for not giving much importance to playing friendlies. Even as we play fewer matches, we seem not to be careful enough to stick to the rules so that the matches qualify as ‘friendlies’. May be the team management did not believe that they could beat Qater. If that match was considered, we would have been in the mid- or even the early- 130s.

    Whew! What a waste!

    Guys, ranking does not matter!
    Fifa has a pathetic method of ranking nations anyway. I don't think we should worry about it, wait for the results to come in friendlies. You know we have improved under Colaco, we saw the improvement against Qatar.
    India should send the senior team for the Challenge cup next year and thrash all teams including North Korea. We can actually benefit from this since most (all?) competing teams are ranked above us and we'll get a lot of points if we win the tournament.

    But, again, as i say, ranking don't matter to me, i'd much rather see actual performances. But if a higher rank promotes the national team more, we should go in for the kill!

    Well now I understand why India is ranked so low,guys there is no much weightage for friendlies in rankings.What matters most is the official matches.

    So how many official matches does India play ???? 2 in WCQ(as we are knocked out early every time) and 3 during Asia Cup,yes that's it in every 5 years can you believe it !!!!

    of course they are taken into account. All the international friendlies and tournaments are taken into acc. provided they follow the rules. Its just that WC matches and WCQ are given more importance than others. Friendlies and invitational tourneys like SAFF, Nehru cup are valued the least.

    WCQ,WC + Continental Finals(Asian Cup) and its Qualifiers are given more importance while calculating points.

    Our bullshit AFC doesn't register AFC Challenge Cup as official qualifiers,so as a result of that India only play 2-5 official matches in every 5 years. <!-- s:violence-smack: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/violence/smack.gif" alt=":violence-smack:" title="Smack" /><!-- s:violence-smack: -->

    No it is not. Ranking system is ok; all the nations are following it and are improving their positions. Only that we are not playing, not adhering to rules of substitution when playing, belittling importance of winning and ranking system --- under the circumstances, we should not hope much towards good ranks.

    Yes it is. Look at the Dutch being no. 1. Look at England at no. 4. Look at Croatia at no. 10.
    FIFA's logic is pathetic.
