Iran take on Nigeria on Monday 16th June, 2014, with kickoff at 20:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

It will be nice for the citizens of Iran and Nigeria to have something positive to focus on these next few weeks, and for the middle eastern side there is also a degree of celebration about being a part of the international community in some way, but Iran are rank outsiders for good reason, and Carlos Queiroz has his work cut out getting them out of this group.

Nigerian football is almost always plagued with accusations of corruption, and this time is no different, but the Eagles have landed and will want to forget that.
