Nigeria held off Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-0 to capture an important three points and put themselves in position to advance out of the group. 

The win eliminated Bosnia and Herzegovina from their first-ever World Cup, but it wasn't without controversy. 

Early on, Edin Dzeko had a goal incorrectly ruled offside when he was clearly onside. 

While Bosnia and Herzegovina were still fuming over Dzeko's disallowed goal, Peter Odemwingie put Nigeria ahead in the 29th minute after an excellent run from Emmanuel Emenike

To make matters worse, some could make the argument that there should have been a foul on the Nigerian goal. 

Bosnia and Herzegovina nearly equalised right at the death of the match, but Dzeko's effort was narrowly saved by Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama to preserve the three points.
