Nigeria came out 1-0 winners in a very hard fought game and kept their chances of qualifying from this group alive, Bosnia on the other hand got knocked out in the group stages having only played two games. Nigeria turned things around after first match where they drew 0-0 against iran and now they will be playing against Argentina while Iran will play against Bosnia.

Bosnia Herzegovina were played good football against Argentina but were unlucky to have come away with a defeat but a draw between Nigeria and Iran keeps them well and truely in for a good chance of qualification from this group. Bosnia will play Super Eagles on Saturday night third kickoff of the day starting at around 22:00 GMT.

Match Preview and Statistics:

Nigeria has not won a world cup game in last 9 matches but overall their record in world cups against European outfits is pretty decent, they have played nine matches against european teams in world cup and won 4 lost 4 and have one draw. Although their scoring record in the previous world cups has been poor, they have not scored from open play since 2002 world cup.

Bosnia on the other hand has one of the most inform european striker in their ranks, Edin Dzeko scored 14 goals in qualifiers and assisted 4. A defeat for Bosnia against Nigeria will potentialy finish their chances of making it to the next round.

Expected Starting Lineups:

Bosnia should go with a unchanged lineups as for Nigeria team I have no idea what they will do after their absolute shocker of a performance against Iran.

Match Predictions:

The worst game of the world cup so far was between Nigeria & Iran. Nigeria were so poor in that game that its hard to describe, on the other hand Bosnia fought for their lives against Messi and co. So looking at the first game performances I can not see any other result that a comfortable win for Bosnia & Herzegovina. If Nigeria were to win this game It will be even bigger surprise than Costa Rica beating Italy.

[ What you think of this match, Looking forward to it ? I for once have no appetite for another Nigerian match but I do hope they turn things around ]
