The latest FIFA rankings have been released with the Socceroos dropping two spots to No.65 in the world despite not playing during the latest scoring period.
The rankings slide comes after the Socceroos climbed a staggering 37 places last month following January’s historic Asian Cup triumph.
Australia lost just one match all tournament before going on to win the final 2-1 after extra-time in front of a full house at Stadium Australia in Sydney.
That was the second largest rise in Socceroos history after Frank Farina’s side climbed 40 places (89th to 49th) back in 2004.
The Socceroos’ highest-ever ranking was a lofty 14th in the world, which was back in 2009 under Dutch boss Pim Verbeek.
World champions Germany – who the Socceroos play in a friendly in Kaiserslautern on March 25 – remain on top of the rankings.
Following the clash with the Germans, Ange Postecoglou’s side takes on Macedonia (ranked 108), five days later in Skopje.
Italy have climbed back into the world's top ten at the expense of Spain, while Barbados and Bermuda were the biggest movers, both jumping 11 places.
