The Indian womens national team has been dropped from the FIFA world rankings as they had not played a single international match in the last 18 months.

The Indian team played their last international match in the AFC Womens Asia Cup 2008 Qualifiers in October 2007, when they went down to Iran 1-4 in Tehran. India was ranked 50th in the world and 11th in Asia in the last FIFA womens rankings issued in March but they are not among 25 Asian sides that figure in the latest rankings.
