23' Bosnia notably improve!Izet Hajrovic cuts inside from the left and hits a low shot that is collected by Nigeria keeper Vincent Eneyama.
21' Eden Dzeko finds the net! But his goal is ruled out for offside. He latches onto a defence-splitting pass and fires home from inside the area. Television replays shows that he was onside. The Man City striker is so unlucky.
19' A curling effort by Bosnia's Zvjezdan Misimovic misses the target.
18' AS Roma midfielderMiralem Pjanic is at the heart of most Bosnia's attacking attempts.

8' A chance for Bosnia! Muhamed Besic's shot following a swift move goes just over the bar from the edge of the area.
