Iran drops three places to 30th in FIFA rankings

November 24, 2016

Team Melli has dropped three places in the latest FIFA rankings released on Thursday, November 24.

Iran is now placed at position 30 in the rankings after the last week’s goalless draw against Syria in the 2018 World Cup qualifier.

Iran still leads Asian teams, followed by South Korea (37), Japan (45) and Australia (48).

Argentina remains top of the FIFA rankings despite its struggle for consistency in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying, with Brazil replacing reigning world champion Germany in second place.

The December rankings will be the final ranking for 2016 and will reveal the winner for the Team of the Year (awarded to the team in first place by year’s end) and Mover of the Year (awarded to the team that has won the most points over the course of the year).

The next FIFA World Ranking will be published on 22 December 2016.
