One of the performances of the World Cup so far was Iran's brilliant effort against Argentina, the Iranians deserved at least a point against the Cup favourites only to be undone in Injury time by a brilliant Messi winner. Iran though put in such a disciplined performance and came out in the second half and attacked Argentina and could have scored a number of times only for the Romero to pull off some terrific saves , i'm sure the Argentina keeper did not expect to be busy against Iran but busy he was. Fulham striker Dejagah is the key to everything that Iran do going forward and you can tell that former Manchester United assistant and current Iran manager Carlos Quieroz has total belief in him. Can the Iranians get themselves a win that would give them a chance of progressing or wil Bosnia get their first ever World Cup points?
Bosnia and Herzegovina have had an eventful two games, not quite in the game against Argentina until the last ten minutes and dominating the Nigeria game only to lose to an early goal. Bosnia and Herzegovina did hit the net a couple of times against Nigeria but the goals were ruled out for offside. Manchester City's Eden Dzeko has had an indifferent World Cup and I expect he would love to get himself on the scoresheet tomorrow. With Roma's Pjanic also having an underwhelming World Cup it would not surprise me if these guys are trying extra hard to restore some pride for th Bosnia and Herzegovina side.
This game is a really tough one to call. I am not all that convinced that Bosnia and Herzegovina will be able to lift themselves for this one and given that Iran could still qualify I think the Iranians just may pull off another shock here and beat Bosnia. But I am going to take the safe option and take Iran +1 on the handicap. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
