Bosnia-Herzegovina v Iran: Predicted lineups
World Cup 2014: Bosnia-Herzegovina v Iran Preview and Projected Lineups
In their first World Cup appearance the promise that Bosnia-Herzegovina showed in getting themselves to the big stage has failed to shine through in their performances in Brazil.
Having been a strong side all throughout qualification, it has been a complete turn of events this summer for the Bosian's that many, including myself, would be a joy to watch this summer.
Likewise Iran have also failed to make the most of their World Cup opportunity, but surprisingly still could go through if they defeat Bosnia and Argentina defeat Nigeria by combined goal difference of over three seeing the Central Asian side squeak through.
However, Bosnia will be wanting to end on a better note than that of the one they have started with and will be looking for the win as well. You can never rule out what Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic can create, but they need to do a better job than they have so far this summer in Brazil.
Iran will likely continue their more negative tactics in the hopes of catching Bosnia on the break and thus getting a chance at making it through.
Bosnia-Herzegovina Starting XI: Begovic: Mujdza, Sunjic, Spahic, Kolasinac; Pjanic, Besic; Hajrovic, Misimovic, Lulic; Dzeko.
Iran Starting XI: Haghighi: Montazeri, Hosseini, Sadeqi, Pooladi; Nekounam, Teymourian; Shojaei, Hajsafi, Dejagah; Ghoochannejahad.
