WORLD CUP 2014 GROUP F BETTING PREVIEWARGENTINA is the heavy favorite to win Group F. Not only because they are considered one of the best teams in the world, but they also get a winnable group. The Argentines finished top of a competitive South American qualifying group ahead of Colombia, Chile and Uruguay. Alejandro Sabella have an array of talent at their disposal, which is highlighted by the four attackers – Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain and Lionel Messi. One area of concern for Argentina is the question marks over their central defence and goalkeeper.
BOSNIA will be making their first every appearance in the World Cup as they
came through a fairly weak qualifying group just ahead of Greece on goal difference. They are also a side capable of scoing plenty of goals, as the showed in qualifying, netting 30 goals. Dzeko and Ibisevic lead the talented attack and young playmaker Pjanic had a great season at Roma. While the offense is solid, the same cannot be said about the defense.
NIGERIA qualified with ease, going through the group stage unbeaten and then beating Ethiopia 4-1 in a play-off to secure their place at the 2014 World Cup. Nigerians also won the African Cup of Nations in 2013 when beating Burkina Faso in the final. Anyway, they had a rough time in the Confederations Cup in Brazil last year with only a win over minnows Tahiti to show for their efforts. A 2-2 draw against Scotland, in which they were second best in a World Cup warmup match, won’t send positive signal. Obi Mikel and Victor Moses are a couple of big name players as well as Victor Obinna from Lokomotiv Moscow.
IRAN is managed by former Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz and topped South Korea and Uzbekistan in qualifications. During this world Cup you can expect Iran to be a very strong defensive unit. They conceded just 6 goals in their 14 qualifying matches. The star of the squad are Ghoochannejhad who plays for Charlton in the English Championship and Dejagah who plays for Fulham. They have never progressed past the group stage of a World Cup in three attempts and that is unlikely to change here.
