Bosnia-Herzegovina in Cuiaba.
Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina have never met before in
international football competition.
Nigeria have made it to the World Cup Finals five times. For Bosnia,
this is their first appearance.
Bosnia's Edin Dzeko had a goal disallowed for offside in the 20th
Less than ten minutes later, Peter Odemwingie scored the only goal of the game to give
Nigeria a good chance of staying in the tournament; with a point against Argentina, who
are already qualified, enough. A win and Nigeria would top the group.
The defeat means the end of Bosnia-Herzegovina's first attempt to get
out of the group stage. However, if they get at least a point against Iran, they can take
the Iranians home with them.
