FIJI dropped a spot in the latest FIFA rankings released this week.

The national men's team is now ranked 182.

Fiji has not played any international matches since the Oceania Nations Cup in the Solomon Islands and the friendlies against the Fair Play Brazil team in 2012.

Fiji dropped to 191 in June last year which prompted an outcry from many soccer pundits.

New Zealand remains the top ranked nation in the region.

The All Whites have a world ranking of 111 and is followed by New Caledonia 136, Tahiti 157, the Solomon Islands 172 and Vanuatu 181.

Fiji's best ever rankings was 94, in July 1994.

Spain remains the number one footballing nation followed by Germany, Portugal, Colombia and Uruguay rounding up the top five.
