Nigeria Beats Bosnia-Hercegovina to Keep Brazil 2014 World Cup Hope Alive
The Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated Bosnia-Hercegovina 1-0 in Brazil Saturday (all times GMT)
Bosnia-Hercegovina’s maiden appearance at a World Cup finals ended in disappointment as Peter Odemwingie’s goal condemned them to a 1-0 defeat by African champions Nigeria in Cuiaba and ensured they could not qualify for the second round.
Nigeria’s win, their first at a World Cup finals since 1998, leaves them as favourites to join Argentina in the second round.
Argentina are on six points after beating Iran 1-0 earlier on Saturday to leave the Iranians on a point while the Nigerians are on four points.
Nigeria play Argentina in their final group game on Thursday — the Africans lost 2-1 on the previous occasion they played the South American side in the group stage in the 1994 finals.
