The Indian football team has dropped two places to the 106th position in the latest FIFA rankings issued on Thursday.

The downward slide came following the Blue Tigers’ 1-1 draw against lower-ranked Bangladesh in the FIFA World Cup qualifier earlier this month.

The draw against Bangladesh came after India’s impressive 0-0 stalemate against Asian champions Qatar in September.
