CUIABA, Brazil : Just a few weeks ago, Edin Dzeko was being heralded as the best player in the English Premier League by no less an esteemed judge as Jose Mourinho.

  
On Friday, he was being compared with probably the three best players in the world.
Bosniaosnia-Herzegovina coach Safet Susic says "he is equally important to us as Cristiano Ronaldo is for Portugal, as Neymar is to Brazil, as Messi to Argentina. That is how important he is to us."
   
Quiet in Bosnia-Herzegovina's 2-1 loss to Argentina in the Group F opener at the World Cup, the pressure is on Dzeko to deliver goals against Nigeria on Saturday to keep the tournament newcomers alive in Brazil.
The attack-minded Susic is predicting "goals galore" in Cuiaba.
