Bosnia-Herzegovina vs. Iran FIFA World Cup 2014 match will start at 9 a.m. PT on Wednesday, June 25, 2014. The Group F match will be played at Arena Forte Nova in Salvador, Brazil. Iran head into their final game in the Group match and remain in contention to advance to second round for the first time in team history, but they would need to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina, who lost their first two matches in their first-ever World Cup.
Bosnia-Herzegovina vs. Iran match will be televised for viewers on ESPN2 (USA) / UniMas (USA, Spanish) / CBC (Canada). The Group F match can also be watched online free through live stream provided by WatchESPN.
Iran's coach Carlos Queiroz said Wednesday's match is effectively their World Cup final as they try to break through the group match. He said that his team is just focused on good performance.
"We didn't come here to win the trophy, nobody expected that from Iran, but we raised our expectations and we raised our dreams. We want to play the match with one goal in mind - to fulfill our dream of reaching the last 16."
Iran had a draw with Nigerian and was defeated 1-0 by Argentina. If Nigeria wins Wednesday match against Argentina, Iran could end up short in meeting the minimum amount of points to proceed.
Ashkan Dejagah told FIFA.com, "We don't have players like Messi, [Sergio] Aguero and [Angel] Di Maria, so we need to focus on making ourselves as well-organised as possible. The shape of the team, making sure we're tough to get through defensively, is something that has been very important for the coach in the build-up to this tournament.
"He's spent a lot of time on the training field making sure that we have that we're compact and ready to take on the best teams in the world. Neither Nigeria nor Argentina had many chances against us and, realistically, that's the only way we can go about things. If we played a really open game against players like Messi, they would have killed us."
Meanwhile, Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Safet Susic also voiced his faith in his team to reach the last 16.
"We must have a goal and that goal is to try to go through to the second round, to qualify for the round of 16," he told reporters on Monday, adding that his team will play for second place.
Susic's team will be led by two star strikers in Manchester City's Edin Dzeko and Vedad Ibisevic of Stuttgart. They were the second and third best scorers in Bosnia's European qualifiers for the World Cup, according to FIFA.com.
While Iran is poised to reach the second round of World Cup, it needs to do what it hasn't done so far in the tournament- score goals. Iran had a 0-0 draw against Nigeria in its opening round.
