Group B - Greece 2-1 Nigeria: Greece edge ten-man Nigeria in thriller

Greece edged ten-man Nigeria 2-1 in a pulsating contest in Mangaung/Bloemfontein to revive their chances of reaching the Round of 16. It all looked like being so different for the Super Eagles, who opened the scoring in the 16th minute through Kalu Uche, but a straight red card for Sani Kaita just after the half-hour mark swung the balance in the favour of the Europeans, who duly secured their first-ever victory in a FIFA World Cup™ match thanks to goals from Dimitrios Salpingidis and Vasileios Torosidis.

The story is too old to be commented.

Greece was Lucky! Nigeria did not have their day. That might be over and out for the country.
