Iran National Team Preview and 2014 Odds to Win the Group F

Iran Football Soccer Team

Iran will be making their fourth World Cup appearance as they play in Group F in the 2014 World Cup. They are a longshot to win the Group with odds of 33-1. The clear favorite in the group is Argentina who is almost assuredly going to advance. Iran will be competing with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Nigeria for the second spot and a spot in the round of 16. Let’s look at Iran and World Cup predictions.

Check out the current 2014 World Cup lines at BetPhoenix sportsbook.

Iran has made the World Cup three times in their history but they have just one win in nine games. They have never made it out of the group stage. The 2014 team could be the best one they have had as they allowed just two goals in eight matches in the final qualifying stage.

Iran has some good players including midfielder Javad Nekounam who is the captain and forward Reza Ghoochannejhad. Nekounam led the team with six goals in qualifying. The team is managed by former Manchester United assistant Carlos Queiroz who also was the coach of Portugal until being fired in 2010.

If Iran is to get out of the group stage they will need Ghoochannejhad to score and they will need to play really well on defense. Jalal Hosseini is an excellent center back and he leads the back line.

Schedule

21 June 2014

25 June 2014

Predictions

Iran won their only match in the World Cup in 1998 when they beat the United States 2-1. They may get their second World Cup win this time around as they are good enough to beat Nigeria. If things go really well they might be able to get a point against Bosnia-Hercegovina. I still don’t think the team is good enough to get out of the group stage but they are definitely good enough to make it interesting in Group F and impact 2014 World Cup lines.
