Nigeria vs. Bosnia-Herzegovina: 6 Things We Learned
Fernando Llano/Associated Press

Peter Odemwingie's goal was enough for Nigeria to defeat Bosnia-Herzegovina in World Cup Group F and send the Dragons home.

Bosnia seemed to struggle with the disappointment of seeing Edin Dzeko's goal harshly ruled offside on Saturday night, and the Super Eagles moved to the verge of qualification for the knockout stages.

Nigeria exploited the flaws Bosnia-Herzegovina showed against Argentina and repeated in this match, but they did not have enough of a killer instinct to finish off their opponent.

Consequently, Dzeko almost equalised in injury-time, but his effort hit the woodwork, with the aid of a deflection from Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama.

Nigeria will now face Argentina in their final match, and they will also hope Bosnia can defeat Iran to secure a place in the last 16 for the Super Eagles.

Here are six things we learned from the match.
