WORLD CUP LIVE: Iran 0 Nigeria 0
Enable automatic updates every 30 seconds? YES NO
All done and dusted. A goalless draw that did exactly what it said on the tin...
Pooladi makes a fine challenge to deny Ameobi an easy header.
Adranik drags a shot wide from about 20 yards out. Iran definitely finishing strongest.
Dejagah misses a big chance for Iran, a great cross from the left.
It opened up for Onazi there - but his shot was easily gathered by Haghighi.
Adranik gets booked.
Oshaniwa crosses for Ameobi - whose header goes just wide. Was going to say it was the best chance of the game but the referee blew for a foul...
Ghoochannejhad hits a shot on the spin but it's well over the bar. Iran just starting to come into it.
Nigerian supporters are getting restless, no wonder.
Emeneke strikes for goal after some decent work from Ameobi. Poor again.
Set piece deliveries have been so poor tonight. Think this has all the hallmarks of the first 0-0 draw at this World Cup.
Second half had better improve...
Half time - and not a classic by any stretch.
Wanderers getting another mention there as Adranik clatters into a Nigeria midfielder.
Ghoochannejhad, Ghoochannejhad, Ghoochannejhad, Ghoochannejhad - think the commentators could use a bit of practice on this fella.
And it leads to a good chance - save from Eneyema as Ghoochannejhad heads towards goal.
Iran finally force a corner, 33 minutes into the game.
There hasn't been a goalless draw at this World Cup so far (or any draw for that matter) but the standard of passing in this one suggests it's a prime candidate.
All the possession has been with the African champions but they have lacked a final pass so far.
It's been all Nigeria but the chances have dried up over the last few minutes.
Emenike shows great strength on the left and put a good ball across the box. Onazi stabbed the ball towards goal but it went wide of the post.
Nigeria have the ball in the net but the goal was ruled out by the referee for a foul on the keeper. Looked a bit harsh.
Moses has the first effort at goal, right footed from the edge of the box. Easy for the keeper Haghighi.
Nigeria had a nightmare four years ago and Iran not exactly noted for their World Cup pedigree. Super Eagles definitely favourites.
Time for round two and a test of my keyboard skills as Nigeria face Iran in Grou p F.
