FIFA Ranking: Lebanon Rises 18 Places to 137

Lebanon makes a huge jump thanks to the 2-0 win against Hong Kong in the opening game of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers Campaign.

Among the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), Lebanon is now placed 23rd.

This victory can create a new momentum for the Cedars after 4 years of decline: the Lebanese national football team was ranked 121st in 2013, 126th in 2014, 139th in 2015 and 147th in 2016.

Two good results against India  in a friendly on June 7 and Malaysia on June 13 in their next Asian Cup qualifier match, would help Lebanon rise in world rankings
