Well, I had Dr. P and ForzaSusan help me with this one, so much action happened…. “Nothing happened.”

All in all it was a boring match. At least as far this World Cup goes. The final score was 0-0 with Nigeria dominating most of the match.

Nigeria’s first substitute came at the 29th minute with Yobo coming on for Oboabona. And after half-time, Ameobi came on for Moses in the 52nd minute and Odemwingie came on for Azeez.

In the 73rd minute, Jahanbakhsh came on for Dejagah and Iran’s Andranik Timotian earned a yellow card in the 75th minute. Following that, Shojaei came on for Heydari in the 89th minute but that’s all the excitement folks.
