FULL TIME: It's all over in Porto Alegre and Nigeria have been defeated, but it doesn't matter - they progress to the Round of 16 along with Group F winners Argentina. We had a blistering start at the Estadio Beira-Rio with two goals in the opening four minutes: Messi followed by Musa. The Barça star then scored a sublime free-kick minutes before the interval before Musa doubled his account just after the break. Rojo secured the victory shortly after and Nigeria's qualification was secured on the final whistle in Salvador, with Bosnia and Herzegovina running out 3-1 victors to eliminate Iran.
ELSEWHERE IN GROUP F

The ball is worked inside to Mascherano, who took over the captain's armband on Messi's departure, and he strikes a venomous drive at goal. Enyeama pats the ball down and collects.
