Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia unmoved in latest FIFA rankings

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Fazrul Nawaz assess Singapore's chances of qualifying for the AFC Asian Cup in UAE in 2019.

Thailand moved within four spots of being the highest-ranked nation in Southeast Asia, as almost all countries including Malaysia and Singapore remain unmoved in the latest FIFA rankings.

Malaysia and Singapore, who also crashed out in the group stages, remained in 161st and 165th, respectively.

Indonesia must build on AFF Cup run and harness team spirit of 2016

TCL presents the story of Indonesian footballer Martunis, who after the 2004 Tsunami was offered the chance to meet Cristiano Ronaldo and train with Sporting Lisbon.

This has been a good year for Indonesian football, despite only coming back to the international fold towards the end of 2016.

The national team's surprise run at December's AFF Suzuki Cup demonstrated the country's potential to return to the top of Southeast Asian football.

Alfred Riedl's charges went all the way to the final only to lose out to eventual champions Thailand, but there is enough quality to build on from there. Stefano Lilipaly and Andik Vermansyah must continue to form the...
