    ELO ratings as well, which I find the algorithm better than FIFA's.

    1. Iran (21)
    2. Japan (23)
    3. Qatar (24)
    4. South Korea (27)
    5. Australia (45)

    Wait a few matches and you will see Iran will not be on top of Asia anymore. What many do not get is CQ's great record. Barely ever losing. Iran did lose to Japan but had not lost to an Asian opponent going back to 2012 against Uzbekistan. So technically almost 6 years undefeated against an Asian opponent. Too sad it all ended with that Japan loss.

    Yes, Japan's loss was miserable.

    No, it did not end with Japan's loss.

    Iranians are capable people. Iranians have talented players. Unfortunately, middlemen/women (agents) make most of the money.

    I wish one day, instead of IFF, Iranians pay the salaries of National Coaches. Iranians have money. Rather than cheap talks, Iranians need to put their money where their believes are.

    It's not people don't want to invest Alrani, they know 5% will go to helping the team and the rest swindled.

    TM should be a neutral force,should be written in our constitution...lol..so it's independent, always in motion and effective...

    Not really. We had a bad second half, and Japan did well to take advantage of our strange behavior but over the last few years, we've had the most consistent performances in Asia. Hell, we have been on a winning streak against even Qatar, the reigning Asian champs.

    we shd STOP fooling ourselves with these meaningless rankings that HURT us more than help us

    enough of this shit.

    I'd rather be ranked 5th (which we might be in reality. or certainly 3rd or 4th) but SUCCEED in games that matter than be 1st but fail to even make the finals of AC

    The point is that we do need to always be aware of our FIFA rankings, because they define our seeding for tournaments which is usually (though not in the case of WC2018) quite useful in terms of potential group stage fixtures.

    But we need to be careful in how we appraise our ranking. Being top in the rankings does NOT mean we are the best team in Asia. It means (both the FIFA and ELO rankings) that we have been the most consistent team and have had the best results on average. Particularly our results against our fellow Asian opposition has on average been better than Japan, Korea etc.... That's good, but we can't get carried away by this.
