Iran, Nigeria play to first draw at 2014 World Cup

Iran and Nigeria played out a scoreless draw in both teams' opening match at the FIFA World Cup in Curitiba on Monday Chances were scarce due in part to Iran's defensive discipline and Nigeria's inability to turn possession into goals. Both teams came close with headers, however, with Iran clearing a chance off their line in second-half stoppage time to preserve a point. The draw was the first at this World Cup after the previous 12 matches each produced a winner.
