FIFA announced the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings on the 26th (Korean time). Korea ranked 24th, two places higher than in September. The result of defeating Tunisia 4-0 and Vietnam 6-0 in a friendly match in October played a role. Klinsmann is on a three-game winning streak in international matches after defeating Saudi Arabia 1-0 in an away friendly match in September.
It ranks third among Asian countries. Japan maintained its lead in Asia, ranking 18th, up one place from 19th last month. Japan accumulated points by defeating Canada (4-1) and Tunisia (2-0) in succession in the October A match. Iran, a powerhouse in the Middle East, ranked 21st and Australia ranked 27th, maintaining its status as one of Asia’s top four players.
Argentina was still firmly in first place. Argentina, which had two consecutive wins over Paraguay and Peru in the South American regional qualifiers for the 2026 North and Central America World Cup held in October, beat second-place France (1,853.11 points) with 1,861.25 points.

Meanwhile, Singapore and China, which will face Korea in the second round of the Asian qualifiers for the North and Central America World Cup next month, ranked 155th and 79th, respectively. As long as there are no major variables, Korea is expected to win with ease.
Additionally, the teams that will compete in one group at the Asian Cup to be held in January 2024 also showed a large gap with Klinsmann. Bahrain, the opponent in the first game, was ranked 83rd, and Jordan and Malaysia, who met next, were ranked 82nd and 137th, respectively.
