The Thai national team has moved up to the highest position in a decade in the latest Fifa rankings.

The War Elephants moved from 114 to 109 after a 1-1 draw with Congo in a friendly match and a 2-1 victory over the United Arab Emirates in a World Cup qualifier this month, the Football Association of Thailand said on Thursday.

It was the highest ranking since 2009, when Thailand stayed at 105 but the Thai team still stayed second in Asean after Vietnam.
