Game three of day ten, and the two sides expected to face off for second place behind Argentina. Bosnia and Herzegovina looked spirited against Argentina in their narrow defeat last weekend, while Nigeria looked slightly the better side against a tough Iran side. Today’s Iranian game has certainly put the Nigerian game in context, so this one should be close, rather than tight. Ideally at least…
Ibisevic has Bosnia’s best chance of the half, but heads over from a corner.
Apparently its Kevin Kilbane, not Danny Murphy.
You could have waited until after I’d been to the gents. First goal missed through visiting the toilet of the World Cup, for those of you keeping score.
Dzeko has another chance, but this time, the flag stays down and the keeper saves.
Edin Dzeko has the ball in the net, but the linesman has his flag up. The replay show that he was about six inches onside, so while wrong, not as bad as Danny Murphy is making out.
Nigeria on top here, without creating too many chances, although part of that was down to Haris Medunjanin hauling down Ahmed Musa twenty yards out. Just about covering defenders, so the referee was right to give a yellow card, but a textbook description of a professional foul.
