And there you have it. The first draw of the 2014 World Cup. It was not very exciting.
The result especially stings for Nigeria, who has visions of moving through to the knockout stage. That chance is still very much in play, but now they’ll almost certainly have to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina. Chances are they aren’t taking down Argentina.
It seemed for all the world that Nigeria would get a goal across early, as they constantly pressured the Iranian defense. But some bad luck and then overall poor play kept them from scoring, and, frankly, they were lucky to get out with a point.
