He was five meters away, there is no way he couldnt have seen it.”In the late Group F game in Cuiaba, Nigeria­ remained firmly in contention for a last 16th place following a 1-0 win over Bosnia­, which eliminated the Europeans.Nigeria now need only a draw against Argentina on Wednesday to advance to the knockout rounds for the first time since 1998.Bosnia were furious after two key decisions went against them in the opening 45 minutes.First striker Edin Dzeko had a legitimate goal wrongly ruled offside.Then, moments later, Nigeria scored through Peter Odemwingie.­Bosnias players claimed Nigerias­ Emmanuel Emenike had fouled Bosnia­ captain­ Emir Spahic in the buildup, but the goal stood.Bosnia coach Safet Susic said afterward his team had been robbed of a goal by New Zealand­ referee Peter OLeary.”I was told there was no offside but its not the first or last time a referee has made a bad decision at this World Cup and it wont be the last,” said the 59-year-old.”We lost to a good side, Nigeria played better­ than against Iran.” Group F Group G Newspaper headline: German veteran striker becomes newest joint all-time leading scorerPosted in: Soccer/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 866902;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = http:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/channel_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
