Shola Ameobi didn't get any playing time today, but Nigeria is off to the Round of 16. This is despite a 3-2 loss to Argentina. The Super Eagles are through to the knockout stages thanks to Bosnia's 3-1 win over Iran. Nigeria's four points were enough to get them through to the next round.
Nigeria will face the winners of Group E in the knockout stages. That's likely to be France, meaning we'd get a Newcastle reunion. France is getting contributions from Mathieu Debuchy and Moussa Sissoko, plus former Magpie Yohan Cabaye.
