Malaysia, Singapore fall to record lows in FIFA rankings

After a winless 2017, Malaysia's new head coach Tan Cheng Hoe hopes to turn around his side's fortunes.

Singapore and Malaysia have slipped to new lows in the latest FIFA rankings after both endured a miserable 2017.

Neither side won a fixture last year, as they fell out of contention for a place at the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

This performance was reflected in the updated list, which saw both countries drop one more spot to establish new all-time lows.

Singapore now sit in 173rd place, while the Harimau Malaya are two places beneath them at 175.

New Malaysia national coach Tan Cheng Hoe says he's prepared for "anything and everything" as he tries to turn around a team who haven't won a match in more than a year.

The Harimau Malaya have endured a miserable 2017, with former Saudi Arabia boss Nelo Vingada quitting after only half a year following six defeats in seven games in charge.

Former assistant Tan steps up to fill the void after his appointment last week, with Malaysia's FIFA world ranking at a record low of 174th.

Malaysia Under-23 boss Ong Kim Swee is confident of a bright future working with Tan Cheng Hoe, the new head coach of the Harimau Malaya.

Tan was appointed on Thursday, following the short but doomed reign of Nelo Vingada, who failed to win any of his seven games in charge, losing six.

FAM's Crown Prince president TMJ had to swallow his pride, having handpicked Portugal's Vingada in search of foreign coach after demoting Ong to oversee the Malaysian U23 squad.

Malaysia promote Tan Cheng Hoe to head coach in place of Nelo Vingada

Nelo Vingada is out as the Malaysian national team manager after losing six of his last seven matches.

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) appointed Tan Cheng Hoe as the new head coach of the national team on Thursday, just a day after the resignation of Nelo Vingada.

The FAM wasted no time in naming the ex-Kedah boss as their replacement as they clearly felt promotion from within the ranks was the best option.

Tan is very familiar with the national team set-up, having served as assistant coach under K. Rajagobal from 2009 to 2013 and under Vingada since his appointment in May of this year.
