Tasnim - Iran has dropped one place in the latest FIFA world rankings released on Thursday.
Iran remains the top-ranked nation in Asia in 25th spot, with Japan at 40, Australia at 50 and Korea Republic at 51.
Germany has returned to the summit of the FIFA World Ranking, continuing this year’s ongoing tug-of-war with Brazil for top spot.
The reigning world champion edged ahead of A Seleção following two impressive FIFA World Cup qualifying victories over Czech Republic and Norway, and head a table much changed after the recent Russia 2018 preliminaries.
The next FIFA World Ranking will be published on 16 October 2017.
