Iran scores to cut Bosnia's lead to 2-1 in the 82nd minute, the first goal for Iran in the World Cup. It's still unlikely it'll get the win. But Iran will not leave Brazil without a goal.

We're underway. 0-0 early in the first half. In the other Group F match, Lionel Messi has already put Argentina up 1-0 on Nigeria. That is a very good thing for Iran.

What's at stake: Iran heads into Wednesday's match vs. Bosnia-Herzegovina with a chance to advance to the second round of the World Cup for the first time in team history.

To advance, Iran needs to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina and get some help from Argentina. Here are the possible scenarios:

If Nigeria beats Argentina, Iran is out, regardless of if it beats Bosnia-Hergovina.

If Iran beats Bosnia-Herzegovina 1-0 and Nigeria loses to Argentina 1-0, the teams tie on points and goal differential and a COIN TOSS will decide who moves on.

Best course of action for Iran today: Score a lot of goals.
