Nigeria wins Bosnia 1-0, We were cheated - Bosnia coach

Peter Odemwingie fired Nigeria to the brink of qualification for the last-16 as they beat Bosnia 1-0 and knocked them out of the World Cup. The striker slotted past Stoke City team-mate Asmir Begovic at the Arena Pantanal, although Bosnia were unfortunate not to have led eight minutes earlier when an Edin Dzeko goal was incorrectly ruled out for offside.

The win leaves Nigeria second in Group F and requiring either a point from their group finale with Argentina or Iran to draw or lose against Bosnia.

Meanwhile Bosnia coach Safet Susic, who started with just Dzeko up front despite saying after the opening defeat to Argentina he would play with two strikers, said that his side had been robbed of a goal by New Zealand referee Peter O'Leary.

"I was told there was no offside but it's not the first or last time a referee has made a bad decision at this World Cup and it won't be the last," said the 59-year-old.

"We lost to a good side, Nigeria played better than against Iran."
