The Aussies remain the second highest ranked team in Asia, behind only Iran and ahead of World Cup qualifying opponents Japan by seven places.
The Socceroos have three huge friendlies approaching over the next month, starting with a highly-anticipated clash with England (10) at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light on May 28 (AEST).
That clash is followed by back-to-back home friendlies against Greece (37) in Sydney (on June 4) and Melbourne (June 7).
Argentina remain in top spot on the rankings, with Belgium and Chile rounding out the top three nations.
