Iran vs Nigeria by ELperro
The Nigerian made a quiet phase of qualifying, ending the group stage ahead of Malawi, Kenya and Namibia (one theoretically accessible group) and also eliminating the weak Ethiopia in the African playoff access to the final stage of the World Cup. Their preparation for this World did not include any victory, but opponents chosen value, two out of three really participate in the finals of the World. Tied with Scotland (2-2) and Greece (0-0) and lost a good match with the USA (2-1). Last March, another draw with Mexico (0-0). Come with some experienced players and active at a good level (Ambrose at Celtic in Lille Enyeama, Mikel and Moses in Chelsea, Onazi in Lazio, Emenike Fenerbahçe), but with other very young and still growing as players, especially on the defensive line. Missing face after this inaugural selections of Bosnia and Argentina game is crucial for Nigeria to win today to be able to discuss ahead the qualification with the Bosnians on second game.
These are two teams that have players with very different quality. Iran has the most players playing in local league, it will be fantastic may be part of the batch of 32 teams who came to Brazil and even well targeted from the bank (Carlos Queiroz is the coach) and good defensive indications in their last game against Nigeria should feel some difficulties to monitor progress, because in midfield and attack Africans have players of great value, where the focus is immediately to Mikel Obi and Victor Moses, both players Chelsea Mourinho. After the defeat of Bosnia with Argentina (previously expected but now confirmed), Nigeria has here an excellent opportunity to take ahead of European and reach advantage in the match between both the second round, decisive for the qualification for quarter-end. With so much at stake for both teams, but with Nigerians to have a clear theoretical supremacy, I believe will confirm in the field that are the best and they are a level above regarding this Iran, which has done well, but almost always before a crush of teams and below this level Nigeria.
