The World Cup group rounds are winding down. Though technically eliminated, Bosnia is playing Iran at 12pm EST. This last match is for pride and to possibly to act as a spoiler. Luckily, the 21 year old nation has some delicious food to fall back on, including their national dish: cevapi (grilled sausage) with an amazing red pepper and eggplant based dipping sauce called ajvar. Speaking of which, if you’re in New York City area, a great place to check out is Cevabdzinica Sarajevo in Astoria, Queens for their fresh grilled meat and stuffed cabbage. See the RoodonFood post here or click the image below. In the next week I’ll post a recipe for making your own ajvar.
Iran for their part is in a funny position, here is a quote from the Daily Mail:
Nigeria or Iran will progress to World Cup last 16 via a coin toss if both finish with identical Group F records –
-Nigeria and Iran could finish with identical group stage records
-Argentina must beat Nigeria 1-0 and Iran must beat Bosnia 1-0 for it to occur
-FIFA will flip a coin or draw one team out of a hat to decide who reaches the last 16 if the two teams finish level on points, goal difference, goals scored and head-to-head
