With already bad performance on the football front, India on Thursday fell another step in the community as it stumbled another step down from 96 to 97th position in the international ranking of FIFA.

The Stephen Constantine-coached side had achieved one of their best rankings in recent history when they climbed to the 96th spot last month.

But in July, there was hardly any international football for Sunil Chhetri and company.

India still has 341 rating points, with no change from their last month's tally.

Canada, meanwhile, jumped five spots to 95th following their performances in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, leading to India dropping to 97th place.

Among Asian countries, India are the 12th highest ranked team in the continent while Iran leads the chart at 24th spot.

India are slated to take part in the Champions Cup next where Mauritius and St. Kitts and Nevis are expected to take part. The tri-nation meet was originally scheduled to be held in Chennai but has now been shifted to Mumbai.

Among the best international teams in the world, Brazil gained top spot from Germany while Argentina, Switzerland and Poland completed the top five.
