A new year, a new low.
In the latest Fifa rankings released yesterday, Singapore were placed 158th, which is the lowest level the Republic has ever hit.
But national football coach Raddy Avramovic (above) was unperturbed by the dismal news when contacted last night.
He said the rankings are not an accurate gauge. Also, the Lions, who lost all six of their groups matches in the World Cup qualifiers, had not played many friendly matches.
