Bosnia and Herzegovina's first FIFA World Cup finals campaign will come to an early end as Peter Odemwingie's first-half strike gave Nigeria a crucial Group F victory in Cuiaba.

In an entertaining contest at the Arena Pantanal, Nigeria struck first a minute before the half-hour when Peter Odemwingie finished off after excellent work from Emmanuel Emenike. Having lost to Argentina on their finals debut, Bosnia and Herzegovina needed to avoid a second defeat to stay in the competition, but were unable to find an equaliser and are now unable to progress regardless of the result of their final game against Iran.
