FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group F (Onward To The Round Of 16)

FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group F (Onward To The Round Of 16)

Argentina lived up to expectations during the Group Stage. La Albiceleste literally kept a clean sheet throughout the first leg of the competition. They have not lost a single match and will be entering the next round brimming with confidence.

 

On the other hand, Stephen Keshi’s Super Eagles also soared high in the Group Stage. They will be joining Argentina in the next leg of the competition, whilst, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Iran were eliminated.

 

Recap

Led by their talismanic striker and captain, Lionel Messi, Argentina hat-trick its way to victory. As mentioned, they never lost a game and in all those matches, it was Messi, who stole the spotlight. This is most especially true during the match against Nigeria.

 

Nigeria showed an impressive performance during the down the wire encounter against Argentina. They may have lost, but still, they were able to advance into the next stage of the competition.

 

Meanwhile, although Bosnia and Herzegovina did not qualify, their utmost control of the match against Iran gave them an honorable exit.

 

As for Team Melli, they also rose to the challenge. Unfortunately, their efforts were not enough to save them from the elimination.

 

The scene-stealer

Messi is often criticized for his goal drought. But this current World Cup proved all of his detractors wrong. Oh, and do not forget Ahmed Musa, who almost broke Argentina’s heart.

 

Likewise, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s last gasp is worthy of praise and recognition and so is Iran’s fighting spirit.

 

The weakest link

While many describes the group as not that exciting, the determination shown by the participants is simply too good to ignore. Therefore, there are no weakest links in this group.

 

Which team will advance?

World cup odds go for Argentina. Pitted against Switzerland, the squad has high winning chances. This is in stark contrast to Nigeria, which is compelled to endure France’s unstoppable rampage.
