The Philippine Azkals jumped by five places after the latest FIFA rankings were released.

The Azkals moved up from 134th to 129th despite playing only once this month, a 5-0 thrashing of Papua New Guinea.

The Azkals remained on top of the Southeast Asian football ranks.

Iran remains as the top team in Asia despite moving down seven spots in the overall rankings.

Germany, Argentina, and Colombia remain as the top three teams in the new FIFA rankings, while Portugal barged to the Top 10 after moving two spots up to ninth.

Togo got the biggest rise as the team jumped 73 places up from 125th to 52nd.

On the other hand, Azerbaijan suffered the biggest drop as the squad fell from 95th to 126th.
