Two of the World Cup's less fancied nations met in Curitiba, Brazil, on Monday, as Iran faced Nigeria.

The Africans had the majority of first-half possession but Iran came closest to breaking the deadlock when Vincent Enyeama turned away this Reza Ghoochannejhad header:

Unfortunately the second-half failed to muster a clear cut opportunity and the game ended in a dour goalless draw.

Group F opened up on Sunday night with Argentina's 2-1 win over Bosnia-Herzegovina.
