To be secure qualification into the round of 16, Nigeria need a point against Argentina in their next game, but if Bosnia beat Iran, that would also be enough.
We'll be back tomorrow!

If Keshi has any sense, he will move Musa to the right to destroy Salihovic for pace.— Kristian Walsh (@Kristian_Walsh) June 21, 2014

Full time. What a match.
Dzeko hits the post. What a save by Enyeama.
Three minutes of extra time.
Dzeko heads right at Enyeama from all of six yards.
The free-kick from Mikel can only find a Bosnian head.
Emenike wins a free-kick for Nigeria on the edge of the Bosnian box.
Dzeko is looking ever more frustrated out there as another cross just flies past his head.
Emenike tries one from range which goes just a foot wide of Begovic's goal.
Mikel tales a yellow card for the side.
Good save from Begovic to get down and stop Ognazi's driven effort.
Uzoenyi has a free-kick that goes about 10-yards over the bar. Poor would be an understatement.
Besic has a tame effort that is easy for Enyeama to save.
Ejike Uzoenyi replaces the injured Babatunde.
Babatunde is stretchered off.
Bosnia are pushing ever further up the pitch in their frenetic search for an equaliser. The only problem is the space they are leaving in behind.
Zvjezdan Misimovic takes the free-kick but it is too high for Dzeko to work with.
Babatunde is receiving treatment. He looks to be in some pain.
Great block by Efe Ambrose to stop Ibisevic from getting his shot away. The forward had turned really well in the box and looked likely to test Enyeama if it were not for Ambrose.
Musa comes off for Shola Ameobi.
Tino Susic replaces Haris Medunjanin.
Great save from Begovic to deny Emenike, managing to get a leg to the striker's effort from five yards.
Emenike again wins the ball off Spahic in a dangerous area but the defender just about recovers. Worry that for Bosnia, Emenike is beating Spahic every time.
Sejad Salihovic replaces Lulic.
Vedad Ibisevic comes on for Hajrovic.
Michel Babatunde see's his shot saved well by Begovic.
Good challenge by Onazi to nick the ball off Misimovic on the edge of the Nigerian box.
Dzeko powers into the Nigeria box but almost immediately is tackled by Omeruo. The 20-year-old has really impressed thus far.
Lulic with a very poor attempt of a cross. Dzeko had made space for himself then.
Pjanic releases Mensur Mujdza down the flank and the right-back manages to pick out Dzeko with his cross but the forwards volley goes flying over the top.
Half-time and Nigeria go in with the lead. That was an absolutely terrific 45 minutes.
Dzeko will be disappointed there. Pjanic does well and pulls the ball back but the forward hits it over from 12-yards.
Nigeria need to grab a second goal as every time Bosnia are attacking they look capable of creating clear cut chances.
Kenneth Omeruo with an absolutely sublime sliding tackle on Dzeko.
He is agile for a tall fella. Begovic, as always, defies logic to get down at his near post to keep Musa's effort out.
Emenike is just receiving some treatment but he looks fine to continue.
Emenike is really impressing. The Bosnian defence cannot handle his unbridled pace. Every time he running at the Bosnian back four you feel that he is going to be the one to prevail.
Haris Medunjaninm finds Dzeko in the box but the striker cannot get enough of his head onto the ball and it goes out for a goal kick.
That goal is such a hammer-blow for Bosnia. They looked well and truly in control of the match before Odemwingie popped up and netted.
NIGERIA ARE IN FRONT. It is great play by Emenike down the right flank. He beats Emir Spahic with ease and has the piece of mind to cut it back to Odemwingie who duly converts from five yards.
Enyeama got away with one there. He spilt Pjanic's shot, one that he has to be holding onto, but Dzeko is not alert to the danger.
Eminike gets the ball on the edge of the Bosnian box but his first time effort sails over the bar.
Absolutely enthralling 25 minutes with both sides going close to scoring. It does not take a genius to work out that there will be goals in this one.
Dzeko gets played in from Pjanic but his shot is straight at Enyeama who gets two solid palms to block the effort.
Solid stop by Enyeama. Izet Hajrovic has an effort from inside the area but his low shot is well saved by the 'keeper.
Bosnia see the ball in the back of the net thanks to Dzeko. However,offside flag is up and it will not stand. The striker was clearly onside.
The corner is too long but ends up falling for Zvjezdan Misimovic on the edge of the box. The midfielder tries to curl one but it goes about two-feet the wrong side of the post.
Bosnia spring a break and end up rewarded with a corner.
Poor from Pjanic. Bosnia have a break on but the Roma midfielder overcooks his pass intended for Dzeko and the ball runs through to Vincent Enyeama.
Onazi has an effort from 20-yards. He hits it well but Begovic is big enough to get across and parry the attempt.
Nigeria are really up for this. They are seeing plenty of the ball and look far more likely to score.
Mikel has a pop from the edge of the area. He does well to keep the ball down but he shanks it slightly and the ball goes wide to the right of Asmir Begovic's goal.
Emineke does well to play in Ahmed Musa but the winger cannot get the ball under. Had he, he would have had a brilliant goal scoring opportunity.
Muhamed Besic tries a shot from range but he gets underneath and his shot goes over the bar.
Peter Odemwingie curls in the free-kick. It is a fantastic effort but just the wrong side of the post.
Zvjezdan Misimovic receives a booking for a professional foul on Ogenyi Onazi.
Bosnia have certainly looked the brighter in the opening five minutes. Edin Dzeko is seeing a lot of the ball and driving at the Nigerian defence.
A lovely lofted pass from John Obi Mikel evades the Bosnian defence and falls to Emmanuel Emenike. The forward turns in the box before tactically winning a corner off Senad Lulic.
Nigeria get the game started.
Bosnia XI: Begovic, Mujdza, Besic, Medunjanin, Sunjic, Spahic, Hajrovic, Pjanic, Dzeko, Misimovic, Lulic
Nigeria XI: Enyeama, Ambrose Emuobo, Oshaniwa, Mikel, Omeruo, Yobo, Musa, Onazi, Emenike, Babatunde, Odemwingie
