The South Korean national soccer team is ranked 23rd in the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), up one spot from last month.

In the FIFA rankings released on Tuesday, the South Korean team, coached by Jürgen Klinsmann, was ranked 23rd, up one spot from 24th in October.

South Korea, which was ranked 28th in the July rankings, continued its upward trend for the fourth consecutive month (September 26th-October 24th).

Klinsmann’s men won both of their November A matches in Asia’s second round of qualifying for the 2026 North American Cup.

They won 5-0 at home against Singapore on Nov. 16 and 3-0 away to China on Nov. 21.

Klinsmann’s men ended the year on a high note with five straight wins, starting with a 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia in September, and will look to win their first title in 64 years at the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar next January.

Among Asian nations, Japan remained the highest-ranked country at No. 17. Like us, they moved up one spot.

Iran (#21) is the next highest ranked Asian country, followed by South Korea.

Australia, up two spots to No. 25, is the fourth highest ranked Asian Football Confederation (AFC) member.

Looking at the countries competing in Group E of the Asian Cup with South Korea, Bahrain is ranked 86th, Jordan 87th, and Malaysia 130th.

In the overall rankings, Argentina and France remain at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, while England and Belgium move up one spot each to No. 3 and No. 4.

Brazil, which lost both of its South American qualifiers for the North and Central American World Cup in November, dropped two spots from third to fifth.

Brazil lost 1-2 away to Colombia on Nov. 17 and 0-1 at home to “nemesis” Argentina on Nov. 22.

Brazil has lost three straight South American qualifiers, including a 0-2 loss to Uruguay in October. 메이저사이트
