India will breach its best FIFA ranking soon: Stephen Constantine
India football coach Constantine
Indian football coach Stephen Constantine is sure that the side under him will breach the historical best FIFA ranking of 94 in the next few months, as he trains his guns on taking the country to a third Asian Cup.
Owing to seven international wins on the trot since last year, the Indian team is currently sitting at exactly 100th spot, and Constantine said by the time the Asian Cup qualifiers end in March next year they should be placed better than the 94th achieved in February 1996. "I am not very good at mathematics. But if we are 93, I would be the happiest man. That would be the historical highest. I am going to do it. I don’t know if it will be on
July 6 (next FIFA ranking date) but I am going to do it. I don’t know if that (Kyrgyzstan win on June 13 in Asian Cup qualifiers) will push us that far but I hope to make history at the end of these qualifiers," Constantine said.
