This is the easiest group on paper, and Argentina wouldn’t have got a better draw. Such is the draw that barring any upsets, they are nailed on to reach the quarter finals, atleast. They’ll be the pick of the group, and why not? Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria should be competing for the 2nd spot.
Argentina are massive favourites and atlast manager Sabella has found the right mix by playing Lionel Messi behind Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain. And with Angel Di Maria in scintillating form, Javier Mascherano, Fernando Gago, Pablo Zabaleta they look really good.
Bosnia have EdinDzeko who had a superb season at Manchester City and MirajlemPjanic who excelled at Roma, and this is a huge achievement for this small country who achieved independence just a few decades back.
Iran did well to come to Brazil, and in Carlos Queiroz they’ve an experienced manager, and they do have a few players playing in the top leagues, but they face a Mission Impossible to qualify.
Nigeria is one of the best teams from Africa, and the favourites to clinch the 2nd spot, and they have enough quality and expertise to finish 2nd.
PREDICTIONS: Argentina and Nigeria to qualify
