Bangladesh National Football Team have risen five spots to 183rd in the latest FIFA ranking published on Friday.

The men in red in green were previously ranked 188 before the ranking was last updated.

The national football team have made it into the main qualifying round of the FIFA World Cup 2022 and AFC Asian Cup 2023 after securing a 1-0 aggregate victory over Laos in the pre-qualifiers.

Bangladesh played out a goalless draw with Laos in the second leg at home which meant they were unbeaten in their last three encounters including their victory against Cambodia in a friendly match on March 9 which saw Captain Jamal Bhuyan’s team improved their rating points from 909 to 922.
