India has climbed two places up to be placed 132nd in the latest FIFA rankings released on Wednesday.

India, which had dropped to 134th position in the previous list after their dismal performance against Pakistan and Fiji, have maintained 344 points as they did not play any international matches in the last one month.

India's next major international assignment is the SAF Championships beginning in Pakistan from December 7 against Nepal.
