It was seriously an impressive match to watch although there were moments of worry as the match played on; Bosnia is said to have had a 59% possessions and they were moments where Nigeria had an impressive play at the goal by Babatunde and Emenike.
FULL TIME: NIGERIA 1 BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA 0 Nigeria have their first World Cup win since 1994 and Bosnia are out of the tournament. In truth they don't really deserve any more from tonight's game. It was an unspired performance and whatever chances they created were wasted by Edin Dzeko. At the back Emir Spahic looked like he was playing football for the first time and Emmanuel Emenike's dominance of the right flank led to the Nigerian goal.
Here is what Nigerians had to say about the match:
