Indian footballCoach Stephen Constantine attributed the upsurge to all his players and the staff.

“It can’t be achieved without the help of the players. We have an exceptional batch of players as we are in the process of building the team for the future,” Constantine told

But Constantine wasn’t willing to go overboard with the new rankings.

“One of my priorities was to improve the National Team ranking when I took over. The results do state that we have improved but there’s still a lot more to achieve,” he added.
