Iran has dropped 6 places in the monthly FIFA ranking in September 2012. Iran which is currently involved in the FIFA World Cup Qualification 2014 in the same group with Korea Rep. , Uzbekistan , Qatar and Lebanon, is now ranked 54 in the list with 573 points accumulated. However , Iran is still 4th in the continental ranking after Japan (793) , Australia (778) and Korea Rep. (763).
This would be one of the lowest FIFA ranking since Carlos Queiroz took over at the helm of Team Melli coaching. The poor results in the World Cup qualifiers was a factor in the drop in ranking. Iran won 1-0 away to Uzbekistan and drew 0-0 at home against Qatar. Both of these teams rank below Iran in the table.
