TEHRANTIMES - Iran has moved up two places in the latest FIFA rankings released on Wednesday.
In the world rankings, Iran climbed 48th place with 590 points.
Carlos Queiroz’s team remains at fourth place among the Asian teams. Japan is still the best Asian team with 829 points followed by Australia (807) and South Korea (740).
World and European champions Spain is still comfortable out in front, followed by Germany and England. England has overtaken Uruguay, who are now in fourth place having lost points due to the devaluation of matches from last year’s Copa America.
The results of 12 matches have been taken into account for the current edition of the FIFA World Ranking. More movement can be expected in the September edition, with the inclusion of the many friendlies due to be played on 15 August, FIFA reported.
