World Cup: Angola-one change, Iran drops key player

Angola, which failed to score in its previous Group D matches against Portugal and Mexico, needs to win to have any chance of advancing.

Midfielder Miloy was picked to replace Andre Macanga, who is suspended after a red card in the last match.

Iran, which has no chance of advancing, will start without three regulars, the AP reports.

Iran coach Branko Ivankovic said he dropped the team's biggest star, playmaker Ali Karimi, because of poor form and erratic behavior. He was replaced by veteran striker Ali Daei.
