The South Korean national soccer team ranked 22nd in the FIFA rankings in June and confirmed “Port No. 1” in the draw for the third Asian qualifying round for the 2026 North and Central America World Cup.

FIFA announced this year’s June men’s soccer ranking on Tuesday (Korea time). Korea ranked 22nd, one step up from April (23rd).

South Korea won both the A match in June with interim coach Kim Do-hoon at the helm, Singapore (7-0 win), China (1-0 win) and the second group match of the 2026 North-China World Cup in Asia.

With the victory of the two matches, South Korea secured the top three FIFA rankings among the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) member countries and took an advantage of entering the No. 1 port in the third preliminary draw scheduled for the 27th.

The third qualifying round will be divided into three groups of 18 teams, and South Korea will be deployed at the top seed to avoid Japan and Iran, who are ranked first and second in Asia. Korea, which scored 1572.87 points in the rankings, edged out Australia (23rd, ranking point 1571.29 points), which has been closely trailing, and maintained its top three in Asia. 메이저놀이터
