SALVADOR, Brazil (AP) -- Iran has stuck to its defensive lineup with one striker for a World Cup match against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Wednesday that it must win to stand a chance of advancing to the knockout stages.
Iran coach Carlos Queiroz fielded the same lineup that conceded a late goal to lose to Argentina in its previous Group F game, with Reza Ghoochannejhad spearheading the attack.
Bosnia coach Safet Susic started with a more attacking lineup with Vedad Ibisevic pairing with Dzeko up front.
Iran: Alireza Haghighi; Jalal Hosseini, Amirhossein Sadeghi, Pejman Montazeri; Mehrdad Pooladi, Ehsan Haji Safi, Javad Nekounam, Andranik Teymourian, Ashkan Dejagah, Masoud Shojaei; Reza Ghoochannejhad.
