The International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) has announced its annual list of the world's top national team coaches, and former South Africa boss Carlos Queiroz was among the names on it.

The 65-year-old, who took Iran to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, appears on the list for a second year running after finishing in seventh position in 2017.

This year, the Portuguese tactician ended in joint-11th position after earning as many points as Germany's Joachim Low. Last year's winner and Queiroz both received two points from the IFFHS jury, which consists of football experts from 90 countries.

Didier Deschamps was named World's Best National Team Coach in 2018 after guiding France to their second World Cup trophy.

Deschamps received 304 points, beating Croatia's Zlatko Dalic, who got 198 points, and Belgium's Roberto Martinez (84 points) to the yearly accolade.
