Points distribution format of FIFA World Rankings

Result Points
Win (no penalty shootout) 3
Win (penalty shootout) 2
Draw 1
Loss (penalty shootout) 1
Loss (no penalty shootout) 0

Till November 2012, in the two-legged Matches, if a team lost the first leg , then in the next leg match except the penalty shootout, it received only two points. However, if the team won the second leg by one goal only, being eliminated in the process, it received 3 points. FIFA fixed this flaw starting with the November 2012 ranking.
