The Chinese men's team played two warm-up games in October and won both.

China beat Thailand 3-0 on October 10 in Changsha, which was taken as a revenge for last year's 5-1 and Asian Games' 2-0 losses to the Thais.

Four days later, China beat Paraguay 2-1 in Changsha.

Iran maintained the top side in Asia, followed by Japan, Uzbekistan and South Korea.

Germany is still No. 1 with Argentina second and Columbia third in the world.
