Odemwingie goal eliminates Bosnia


Peter Odemwingie scored the only goal of the game to give Nigeria a victory that ensured Bosnia-Hercegovina will not qualify for the last 16.

The Stoke player struck in the first half to give Nigeria their first win in the World Cup finals since 1998.

Bosnia striker Edin Dzeko had a goal incorrectly disallowed for offside just a few minutes earlier.

Nigeria will make the knockout stages if they get a point against Argentina or if Iran fail to beat Bosnia.
