THE Fiji men's soccer side has moved up two places in the recent FIFA world rankings.
The national side is now ranked 185.
Fiji is in seventh spot in the Oceania region behind leader New Zealand (79), New Caledonia (126), Tahiti (144), Solomon Islands (171), Samoa (178) and Vanuatu (182).
A 32-member national training squad was named during the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants in Ba for international matches against Vanuatu and New Caledonia which were later cancelled.
Fiji Football Association vice president and national team director Tarunesh Reddy said they were trying hard to secure sponsors for overseas tours.
He said the focus was on the build-up for the Pacific Games in 2015 and the qualifications for the 2017 Confederations Cup and the 2018 World Cup.
Reddy said they were targeting Asia after countries in the Oceania region turned down their offer.
The parent body has been under pressure to arrange for international matches since Fiji dropped to its lowest ever rankings of 191 in July. Spain remains the top footballing nation in the world.
Germany is second followed by Argentina, Colombia and Belgium rounding the top five.
Meanwhile, the Fiji women's team is unranked having not played any matches in the past 18 months.
