Bosnia 3, Iran 1: Iran eliminated from contention following first World Cup win by Bosnia and Herzegovina

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz has named an unchanged lineup for his side's must-win against eliminated Bosnia and Herzegovina. Team Melli need a victory and hope Argentina beat Nigeria to stand any chance of making the knockout stages for the first time in their history.

Meanwhile, Bosnia, who are just looking to salvage some pride after defeats in their opening two group games, have made a handful of changes and a formation adjustment. Coach Safet Sušić has replaced right-back Mensur Mujdža with Avdija Vršajević, while Sead Kolašinac returns to his position on the left of the defence. Attacking midfielder Zvjezdan Misimović and wide forwards Izet Hajrović and Senad Lulić are out, with central midfielders Tino-Sven Sušić, Anel Hadžić and striker Vedad Ibišević replacing them to form what looks like a 4-3-1-2.

Bosnia v. Iran

Bosnia and Herzegovina (4-3-1-2): Asmir Begović; Sead Kolašinac, Emir Spahić, Toni Šunjić, Avdija Vršajević; Tino-Sven Sušić, Muhamed Bešić, Anel Hadžić; Miralem Pjanić; Edin Džeko, Vedad Ibišević.

Iran (4-1-4-1): Alireza Haghighi; Mehrdad Pooladi, Amir Hossein Sadeghi, Jalal Hosseini, Pejman Montazeri; Javad Nekounam; Ashkan Dejagah, Andranik Teymourian, Ehsan Hajsafi, Masoud Shojaei; Reza Ghoochannejhad.
