World Cup: Iran's satisfaction is Nigeria's disappointment
- The first draw of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil came on Monday afternoon, in the 13th match of the tournament. While that number brought the well-organised Asians no misfortune, the same could not be said for their African opponents, who went away with less than they had hoped for. 6/17/14
