Argentina: Argentina come into the tournament with a very balanced squad and should breeze through the group stage. Lionel Messi will look to add to his World Cup tally of a solitary goal. On paper, they have one of the best sides in the tournament and the team is peaking at the right time. Argentina is one of the pre-tournament favourites and with players like Angel Di Maria, Javier Mascherano, Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain we won’t doubt the football pundits.
Iran: Iran is back at the world cup finals after a period of eight years. They were knocked out of the tournament the group stages in 2006 world cup and coach Carlos Queiroz will be hoping to clear the first hurdle this time around in Brazil. Bookies have placed a better bet on them to reach the finals compared to Costa Rica and Honduras tells us that they can cause those odd upsets.
