Iran striker Ashkan Dejagah has said that Iran must concentrate on coming out victorious when they go against the Super Eagles in 2014 World Cup games.

Iran have been drawn against Nigeria, Argentina and Bosnia and Herzegovina in Group F of the competition in Brazil

Iran will play Nigeria in Curitiba on June 16.

“All three matches in the group stage are important but we have to defeat Nigeria since it’s our opening match,” Dejagah said.

Dejagah scored a crucial winner to help Fulham to a much needed win over Newcastle United last weekend.

Despite the positive result, the Cottagers remain four points adrift of safety in the Premier League table with eight matches left to play.

“We now have to fight for the rest of the season and take some more points. The whole of the team fought on Saturday  and the fans and the staff also played a big part. We’re all together in this,” Dejagah told the club’s official website.

“We have to fight every week. We can’t just play good football, you have to battle, and this is what the manager says to us every day. The team showed the manager and the fans against Newcastle that we’re ready to fight together.”

Fulham are back in Premier League action tomorrow when they make the trip to Manchester City.
