Iran displayed another stellar performance at the 2015 FIVB Volleyball World League in Tehran Friday as they claimed their third win at home, this time in a thrilling fifth-setter over Poland 3-2 (25-21, 23-25, 21-25, 25-16, 15-11).

After this match, the US stood atop of Pool B followed by Poland, Iran and Russia.

The National Iranian volleyball team had ranked fourth in the FIVB 2014 World League, gaining the best title among the Asian teams which have participated in the 25-year history of the league.

Brazil (9 times), Italy (8 times), Russia (3 times), Cuba (once), the Netherlands (once), Poland (once) and the US (twice) are the seven countries which have won the World League during its previous 25 editions.

Iran had ended the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship in sixth place by beating world powerhouses like the US and Italy.

According to the latest FIVB ranking in 2014, the Islamic Republic of Iran is in the 10th spot in the world. Three-time defending champions Brazil remain the top-ranked volleyball team with 335 points after they won the silver medal in the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship, and are followed by Russia with 330 points, despite a disappointing fifth-place finish with Poland occupying the final podium spot after their excellent performance in front of their home fans at the Men’s World Championship with 275 points.

Italy (fourth), the US (fifth), Argentina (sixth), Germany (seventh), Serbia (eighth), Bulgaria (ninth) and Iran (10th) complete the top 10.
