Full Time: Nigeria win 1-0 thanks to Odemwingie's 29th minute goal. It was tough, it was hard, but Nigeria have done it! And they are all but through to the next round.

92 - Dzeko so close! Turns in the box and shoots. Enyeama saves onto the woodwork

90 - Bosnia CK not properly cleared, returns as a cross. Dzeko heads in, Enyeama saves on the line. Whew!

83 - Emenike with an effort from distance. Just wide

Onazi shoots, Begovic saves, falls to Uzoenyi, but his shot is blocked

81 - Oshaniwa sees space, drives into it, clipped by Besic. FK. Mikel book

78 - Ameobi wins a 50-50 but is fouled by Sunjic on the edge of the box. FK

83 - Emenike with an effort from distance. Just wide

75 - NGA SUB Uzoenyi on for Ejike. Yobo comes up with a saving clearance

74 - Yobo concedes a CK under pressure. Headed just wide by Ibisevic

72 - Close call. Bosnia break, ball is crossed to the far post, Yobo heads to Enyeama. Close

65 - SUB NGA Ameobi on for Musa

61 - Good work from Babatunde. Shoots, Begovic spills, chases down the rebound and Emenike shot saved by Begovic

48 - Ball in behind finds Hajrovic and his cross is spooned over by Dzeko.

46 - The second half is underway

Half-Time: Nigeria lead by that Odemwingie goal in the 29th minute and no one can say they don't deserve it. And more. Sefat Susic's team need to find a goal, or they'll be the first newcomers not to progress since 1982.

39 - Bosnia only half clear a CK, Musa picks it up, drives in and shoot. Begovic just keeps it out. Just

35 - Emenike out muscles Spahic again. But this time, he goes for a half cross, half shot that ends up nowhere

33 - Odemwingie tires a left foot effort from distance. Too weak. Begovic gathers easily

29 - GOAL!!!. Nigeria 1-0 Bosnia. Emenike shows strength to hold off his marker, cuts back for Osaze for simple finish

27 - Mikel coughs up the ball again, and Bosnia break. Enyeama spills effort but no one to pounce.

27 - Poor effort from Onazi. Starts a counter attack, is played in by Emenike, but shoots wild 

25 - Error from both central midfielders, Mikel then Onazi and Bosnia are away, but Dzeko can't control a touch. Let off

24 - Onazi missed a tackle, Bosnia break. Dzeko is onside now but Omeruo's block and Enyeama's save deny him

22 - Again, Musa can't get a foot to an excellent cross

21 - Dzeko gets the ball in the net after Nigeria are carved open, but is called for offside. He looked on

19 - Bosnia CK is not cleared properly and Misimovic tries to curl one past Enyeama.

14 - Good work from Babatunde, and he finds Onazi who shoots. Begovic just keeps it out

11 - It's Nigeria who break again. Musa down the right, scuffs his cross, Emenike gets Mikel in but he shoots wide

9 - Fine break by Nigeria after sweet skill by Babatunde. Emenike lofts the ball for Musa, but he can't control. Chance!

Mikel turns the ball over, and Bosnia break with Nigerria backpedalling. But Besic shoots over from range 

7 - Odemwingie takes FK, and is inches wide of the post!

6 - Musa steals a square pass and sets off, but is pulled back by Medujanin, who is booked.

3 - Emenike wins a CK. Musa takes, clearance falls to Onazi but he hits it high

2 - Yobo with a clearance from Hajrovic cross

1 - We are underway

Nigeria's anthem echoes around the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba.

The teams are in the tunnel, preparing to make their way out to the pitch

Lazio teammates Ogenyi Onazi and Senad Lulic face each other tonight, as do Stoke City pair Peter Odemwingie and Asmir Begovic.

Warming up. We will be underway soon. Do you believe the Super Eagles can do this?
