Edin Dzeko scored in Bosnia's 3-1 win over Iran as the Bosnians were able to walk away from the World Cup with three points.

Bosnia were already ruled out of the next round but came out to play against Iran and showed why they were hyped up before the tournament. They played well and saw off Iran without much trouble. Iran had a chance to make the next round with a win and a Nigeria loss but struggled again in attack and were only able to score one goal. Iran's only goal in this tournament came from Reza Ghoochannejhad, who looks like the future of Iranian football.

Edin Dzeko and friends played a solid game against Argentina but struggled in delivering the final pass.

Edin Dzeko struggled in this match, failed to get open, and wasn't a problem for Argentina's defenders. Bosnia controlled parts of the game but they lacked speed and couldn't create chances. They scored a late consolation goal through substitute Vedad Ibisevic but it wasn't enough to get any points from this match. Bosnia should be much better against Iran and Algeria and there is fantasy value to be had here for the rest of the group stage.

Edin Dzeko starred in Bosnia and Herzegovina's 2-1 win over the Ivory Coast by scoring two great goals.

Bosnia and Herzegovina started off great and took a 2-0 lead through Edin Dzeko. Dzeko was doing everything and is clearly the best player on his squad. Bos & Herz have a manageable group and Dzeko will be a great pick in Fantasy World Cup. With that said, I wouldn't recommend many Bosnian defenders. Didier Drogba came off the bench and exposed the defense of Bosnia, scoring a great goal and having an overall great impact.

The Manchester side now need to win their last two matches, both at home, in order to win the Premier League. They face Aston Villa and West Ham, both winnable matches, and they are now prime candidates for the title. Liverpool face Crystal Palace and Newcastle but are behind on goal difference and need City to slip.

Dzeko opened the scoring just 43 seconds in to the match after Samir Nasri had hit the post, before the Bosnian forward added a second goal with a cool finish from a Nasri corner. Yaya Toure put a gloss on the scoreline in the dying minutes and it was no less than Manuel Pellegrini's men deserved. Manchester United were awful, offering very little in front of the Old Trafford faithful, and the pressure is back on David Moyes. City move within three points of Chelsea.

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has admitted Sergio Aguero's injury is a blow for the club, but is confident he can fill the void.

Dzeko has been mainly limited to substitute appearances this season but has generally done well when called upon, scoring nine goals in all competitions already. It will be between the Bosnian forward and Stevan Jovetic to fight for the right to partner the inform Alvaro Negredo during Aguero's absence, which could stretch to 10 Premier League games. With the quality in Manchester City's midfield there will always be chances created for the strikers, so it's worth monitoring both men's form over the next few weeks.
