  1. Wrong. India with 328 points will be ranked 105 behind Zimbabwe.

  2. Seems India's win against Macao on 11th October has not been taken into account for calculation of October ranking by FIFA.

    1. It had to be taken and it had already been taken into account. You have doubt about a little improvement in India's ranking. That is because Macau is far behind India. If india wins against a team worse than Macau (say Pakistan, rank 201), India will go down even after a win! That is the method of ranking.

    2. India was supposed to have 340 points, not 328. Where have those 12 points gone?
