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.
Nigeria: The Golden Eagles are in red hot form and come into the tournament at the back of an African Nations cup win last year. Stephen Keshis men will love to put up a strong showing in Brazil to erase the memories of a disastrous world cup showing in South Africa. With players like Jon Obi MIkel and Emmanuel Emenike in good form, a place in the knock out stage looks realistic.
