105 Paraguay Paraguay
106 Kuwait

Kuwait is the best

Best soccer side in the gulf

I live there

107 Cuba Cuba Cuba, officially the Republic of Cuba, is a sovereign state comprising the island of Cuba as well as Isla de la Juventud and several minor archipelagos.

Amazing soccer team probably best in central america

They are the best team of all time

108 Iran Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia.


Iran is better than many teams rated higher on this list.

Iran has a DECENT squad, and qualified for the last world cup, they should be top 70-100?

What? Seriously? Iran was the 3rd country who got accepted for 2018 world cup after russia and should be in top 20. Come on people what? - pouria_mt

109 Poland Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north .

I think Lewandowski alone id counted as a team would be in top 30. Poland should be placed around 20th position

This list is a joke! Poland should be way higher!

Lewandowski should be able to bring his team to at least top 50, the fact that Poland is this low beats me

109? what?

110 Romania

Hey look at FIFA rankings Romania is no.3 how made this list, come on Swaziland is not better than Romania in the World Cup Romania best Swaziland 6-1

Romania are not 91 they should be 42 this is just wrong

They should be in the frist 30 at least. They had some good players: Popescu, Balaci, Belodedici, Camataru (who won the Golden Boot in '87), Dobrin (skilled like Ronaldinho, beat Real Madrid and Valencia playing for his football club back in the days), not to mention Hagi who played for both Real and Barca and Galatasaray. During World Cups, they won against the likes of Argentina ('94) and England ('98).

Also, it is the first nation to have ever register for the first World Cup in 1930.

111 Bosnia and Herzegovina

Should be top 100 since they at least qualified for world cup?

With talents like Dzecko, Begovic, and Misimovic, Bosnia could be great. They are young and developing but could quickly make their way up to top 25 and higher. They almost beat Argentina in the World Cup, losing 1-2 off of an own goal. They also beat Mexico and the Ivory Coast. When they play without stress (The 3 matches I mentioned, they had nothing to lose) they play great, but under some actual pressure to perform (Nigeria), they got sloppy. Give them time and they will develop.

You ididots bosnia qualifing 2014 for the first time ever for the world cup
He defeats Greece 3:1 and was first in the group.
