The good run had to end somewhere. Though the start of the 2014 World Cup tournament has been filled with goals, comebacks and excitement, Nigeria and Iran put a stop to it all with a 0-0 draw in Group F action on Monday. Both teams walked away from the first draw in this year's tournament with one point. Neither has won a World Cup match since 1998.
Man of the Match
Nigerian midfielder John Obi Mikel got the honor, but the sentiment on Twitter said differently:
Did you know that if you're fair-haired and blue-eyed, you stand a better chance of appearing on television. No kidding. Here's proof:
Nigeria will look to generate some offense (and maybe three points in the standings) against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday in Cuiaba. Iran will run into Lionel Messi and the Argentina show in Belo Horizonte on the same day.
