India's draw against Myanmar was a blemish on the flawless record that they had maintained before that in the fourth round of qualifying for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

Leaping nine places, the Teranga Lions are nestled in 23rd place in the world rankings, their best position ever.

Winning its last three World Cup qualifiers (against Cape Verde 2-0, and against South Africa 2-0 and 2-1), Senegal qualified for the global competition for the first time since their appearance in 2002.

DR Congo with 764 points and 36th position in the world are fourth.
