Well it's kind of a few days away now and 2 days after Italy too so could be difficult.

I am guessing for an update on who didn't train. This will be met with speculation about our starting line up even though it's perfectly normal recovery after the game and nothing serious. Then some comment on Luis Suarez and will he/won't he play + 'other game in group' chat about Argentina where they can fill comfortable

I also appreciate the symmetry of us using this thread to discuss how they will discuss England in their build up too :p

I wonder how many empty seats there will be in this game, probably more than in the England vs Italy and Japan vs Ivory Coast games.

I don't think a Carlos Queiroz team is going to win 4-0. I suspect he has them playing like Portugal when he was in charge there - defensive football, clean sheet first, maybe a goal on the counter attack.

Nigeria would win if they actually concentrate.

The fact is that this is the game I expect them to be most lackadaisical about so it is a win for Iran via an early set piece goal.

Been saying this for 2 days now. That's why I haven't been looking forward to this match. Nigeria should be winning this, but that will only happen if they actually focus and stay disciplined.

With Ideye missing the cut, there's nobody to **** up all the good chances you'll have :D

Good freaking riddance

Ameobi needs 36 goals to be Nigerias all time top scorer. Reckon he can do it during this world cup.

I actually spit out my water :D

Ideye being cut was one of the best moments for me, I am also glad of the lack of Uche brothers.

Bright Dike is a miss though as he looked very promising :(

I was really hoping both he and Olaitan could sneak into the squad before his collapse.

He's going to have to do it from the bench. It won't be that much of a hindrance to him, I'm sure.
