TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Nigeria national football team coach Stephen Keshi said the Iranian football team is something of an unknown quantity.

Nigeria will play Iran on Monday at the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba. The African representative will also face Bosnia and Herzegovina and Argentina in Group F of the 2014 World Cup.

"We have to go out with everything that we have. They have a very good coach and I'm sure they also have some quality players," Keshi told FIFA.com.

"We don't know Iran very well, but we'll see them on Monday."

Quieroz has managed a host of nations including South Africa and Portugal as well as a stint as coach at Real Madrid.

"I think an experienced coach is their biggest weapon. He's well experienced, he knows the game well," he added.
