Tehran Times – ZURICH, Iran national football team moved up one place to 21st in the latest FIFA rankings.
Iran leads Asian teams and champions Qatar, the 2022 World Cup hosts, stay at No. 55.
While there were 150 games played across the globe during the international period, things remain tight at the top of the FIFA World Ranking as the top three remained unchanged.
This sees Belgium (1st, unchanged) maintain a slender lead – growing it marginally to three points – over 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia winners France (2nd, unchanged). Brazil (3rd, unchanged), however, are looking over their shoulders somewhat as England (4th, up 1) leapfrogged World Cup finalists Croatia (5th, down 1).
