IRAN v NIGERIA BETTING PREVIEW

Iran go into Group F, which also includes Argentina and Bosniaa, as heavy underdogs even if Queiroz guided Iran to the finals by topping their Asian region qualifying group ahead of Korea Republic.

888 Sport Betting BonusQueiroz favours a 4-2-3-1 formation. They do not habitually create many chances but their strength is the defence. The four most recent games were all low scoring affairs including a 1-1 draw with Angola.

The Portuguese manager hasn't reported injuries to his squad, so Reza Ghoochannejhad will lead the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Javad Nekounam. Centre-back pairing Montazeri and Hosseini will be key in keeping the team organised along with captain Javad Nekounam. A man to watch in the home side will be Ashkan Dejagah, who scored five goals for Fulham in the 2013/2014 Premier League season.

Nigeria arrive here as champions of the African continent after their AFCON win in 2013. They qualified for these World Cup finals in impressive fashion after a 4-1 aggregate victory over Ethiopa in the 3rd round qualification stage. Anyway, they failed to find a way past either Greece or USA in open play in their last two friendlies

Ahmed Musa and Gabriel Reuben have both overcome their injuries, meaning that Stephen Keshi has a full squad to choose from ahead of their World Cup opener. Emmanuel Emenike will provide the firepower up front, while youngster Kenneth Omeruo will play at the back.

The one previous meeting between Iran and Nigeria came in a friendly in 1998; the Super Eagles won 1-0.

IRAN v NIGERIA PROBABLE LINEUPS

Iran (4-2-3-1): Davari; Beitashour, Hosseini, Sadeghi, Pooladi; Nekounam, Teymourian; Haddadifa, Shojaei, Dejagah; Ghoochannejhad.
