The final whistle sounds.

FULL TIME: Bosnia and Herzegovina exit the competition thanks to Nigeria's first World Cup win since 1998. A first-half goal from Peter Odemwingie settled matters, and it was a wonderfully powerful performance from Emmanuel Emenike who had the Bosnian defence worried all evening. Dzeko had a late chance to keep his side in the competition, but Enyeama touched on to the post. Nigeria go second in Group F behind Argentina, who they face on Wednesday.

90'+ENYEAMA (Nigeria) blocks the shot.

OFF THE POST! A lobbed through ball drops to Dzeko, he takes a touch off his chest, puts it onto his left foot and fires at goal. Enyeama saves and it's off the woodwork and away.

90'+DŽEKO (Bosnia and Herzegovina) sees his effort hit the target.

90'+ENYEAMA (Nigeria) blocks the shot.

BIG CHANCE! Pjanic receives the ball back from the corner kick, and lobs it back into the centre of the penalty area with a half-volleyed cross. Dzeko rises highest with a standing jump but it's a simple save for Enyeama.
