UPDATE: Bosnia couldn’t bring their powerful play against Argentina to their match against Ghana, losing the match 1-0 and losing their chance at advancing past group play.
With Bosnia and Herzegovina losing their last match, and Nigeria playing to a draw in theirs, you might expect Nigeria to be the favorite in a matchup between the two teams.
But according to most experts, it’s the exact opposite.
Even though Bosnia lost their opening match, their strong play against powerhouse Argentina left many talking about how they could emerge as the number two team in Group F. Nigeria, meanwhile, was expected to score against Iran in their first match, but didn’t. Further complicating things for the Super Eagles is the loss of star player Godfrey Oboabona to injury.
Can Nigeria overcome injuries and odds to win? Or will Bosnia take the second spot in Group F? Find out today at 6 PM ET (10 PM UTC).
