Tuesday 24 June 2014
Ahead of the final round of fixtures in Group F, we look at the various permutations.
The remaining games are Nigeria vs Argentina and Iran vs Bosnia-Herzegovina. Both kick off at 5pm and are on ITV.
Argentina – Qualified
Lionel Messi's late goal over Iran last week booked a place for the Argentinians in the last 16. A draw over second place Nigeria will see them top Group F.
Nigeria – Must draw with Argentina
A draw between Nigeria and Argentina will work well for both teams as the South Americans will win the group with the Africans guaranteeing their place in the knock-out stages. A win for Nigeria over Argentina will see them top Group F, sending Argentina into second place.
Iran – Need to beat Bosnia-Hercegovina and require Argentine win over Algeria, with a superior goal difference
After losing to Argentina in the cruellest fashion last week, the Iranians now rely on them to triumph over Algeria whilst making sure they beat Bosnia-Herzegovina in the process. Even then, Iran will need a superior goal difference to advance.
Bosnia-Herzegovina – Out
With two losses from two games, Bosnia-Herzegovina are guaranteed to be spectators following the conclusion of the group matches.
