Iran falls three places in Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings

Iran falls three places in Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings

Nigeria's spot has been boosted by their friendly victory over Poland as they climb five places to 47th in the world.

Nigeria have also moved up in the African Ranking moving up one place from seventh to sixth.

Nigeria's Group D Russian Federation 2018 opponents Croatia, Iceland and Argentina all dropped in the rankings.

The hosting rights of the 2026 World Cup will be awarded in June, with Morocco planning to become the second African nation to host the World Cup as they hope to overcome the joint bid from the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Less than a month removed from their historic win over Tajikistan in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers to qualify for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, the Philippine Men's National Football Team made even more history, this time in terms of world rankings. Iceland are now 22nd dropping four spots from their 18th position in March.

There are also suggestions a 48-team World Cup in Qatar would exacerbate logistical problems, as the number of matches would rise from 64 to 80 at a tournament that has already been moved to a November-December slot due to concerns about extreme summer heat.

"As we like to think big and do [football] justice, I am presenting a written request signed by CONMEBOL's 10 countries for the 2022 World Cup to be played with 48 teams", the organization's president Alejandro Domínguez said. Belgium climb to third while Portugal dropped to fourth.

Likewise, Switzerland, France, Spain, Chile and Poland complete the list of top ten nations in world football.
