FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking
Iran reach record high
(FIFA.com) 17 Mar 2004
No change at the top of the March edition of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking as the leading six nations, headed by Brazil, remain unaltered. Long-time Ranking trail-blazers Germany (10th, up 2) are back in the Top Ten having fallen from grace in December last year. Czech Republic and England consolidate their Top Ten berths, moving into a three-way sixth-spot tie with Argentina.
In the Top 50, Iran show how it is done as they move up 7 slots to claim their best ever ranking, taking 24th place. Undoubtedly helpful in this endeavour was their 3-1 win over Qatar in the FIFA World Cupô qualifying match on 18 February.
Teams in the nether regions of the Ranking have followed Iranís lead: Hungary (67th, up 7), Haiti (86th, up 8) and Cyprus (92nd, up 7) have all made considerable gains but the uncontested Best Mover this month is Belarus (78th, up 13).
On the African continent, the best points gains so far this year go to Tunisia, Nigeria, Mali and Morocco, still riding high on their wins in the African Cup of Nations.
FIFA World Cupô qualifiers are once again underway in North and Central America and the Caribbean, as well as in Asia, with 25 matches taking place last month. Add to this the 43 friendly matches contested worldwide and the total number of international matches in the first quarter of this year has already surpassed the 150 mark.
