July 03, 2007 18:15 IST

The bronze medal finish at the Champions Challenge hockey tournament helped India stay in eighth place in the latest FIH world rankings.

Amidst a shake-up in the lower half of the top 10, India remained unaffected thanks to their 4-3 victory over England [Images] in the third place play-off game in Boom, Belgium, on Sunday.

With 1180 points, India are behind seventh-placed Korea, who slipped one rung to allow Champions Challenge winners Argentina climb a notch.

England, who were beaten twice by India in the tournament, dropped a rung to 10th.

New Zealand [Images], the runners-up at the Belgium meet, are placed ninth.

Top 10 rankings: 1. Germany [Images] (1878), 2. Australia (1845), 3. Spain (1781), 4. Netherlands (1663), 5. Pakistan (1523), 6. Argenina (1284), 7. Korea (1225), 8. India (1180), 9. New Zealand (1065), 10. England (1059).
