Fiji FA moves third in OFC region

Fiji sat on 198th but recently released FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking shows Fiji whopping 17 positions.
New Zealand retain their place at the top of the standings, sitting pretty at 136th in the World, while New Caledonia come in behind at 166th.
Tahiti make a four position move up the rankings but it wasn’t enough to retain their place in third as they sit in behind Fiji in fourth.
The teams currently taking part in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Qualifiers – OFC Stage 1 are on an upward trajectory thanks in part to their pre-tournament build-up matches, with the competition itself likely to contribute to further movement in the next rankings release.
Samoa is sitting highest of the four in 196th place, one spot ahead of Vanuatu, while Tonga and American Samoa take up 199th together after a one position drop and a one point step up respectively.
Cook Islands, moving one point higher, are now sitting 205th equal with Papua New Guinea who dropped four positions.
The FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking was released on 3 September, the next edition will be published on 1 October 2015.
