Singapore slide to lowest-ever position in FIFA rankings

Singapore have plummeted to an all-time low of 173rd spot in the latest FIFA rankings, three spots lower than traditional regional minnows Cambodia.

The Lions have slumped 11 places to sit two spots below their previous low point of 171st, set in October last year and again in August 2017.

V. Sundramoorthy's men were ranked 162nd last month, four spots ahead of rivals Malaysia. The Tigers are currently tied for 170th with Cambodia.
