Bosnia-Herzegovina ended their debut appearance in the World Cup by defeating Iran 3-1 in Salvador on Wednesday. Their tournament was finished earlier, with two defeats to Argentina and Nigeria, but the Dragons bounced back to end on a positive note.

Iran, on the other hand, desperately needed a win, harboring the hopes of taking second place and a spot in the last sixteen. But their performance was far away from good enough. Carlos Queiroz's team was harmless for most of the match, leaving Bosnia with 66 per cent of possession, according to WhoScored.

Still, the Iranians are not the only team leaving Brazil with regrets—Bosnia-Herzegovina were denied by Nigeria only after a clear goal was disallowed and the post saved Edin Dzeko's late effort.
