CUIABA Brazil (Reuters) - Peter Odemwingie's 29th-minute goal gave Nigeria a 1-0 lead over Bosnia at halftime in their World Cup Group F match on Saturday.

Bosnia's Edin Dzeko had an effort wrongly ruled out for offside before Odemwingie tucked the ball home from six metres after a surging run down the right by Emmanuel Emenike.
