FIFA World Cup 2014: Iran vs Bosnia-Herzegovina 44th Match in Pictures

Bosnia beat Iran 3-1 in their Group F finale on Wednesday to record their first World Cup win and deny the West Asians any chance of reaching the knockout stage.

Bosnia doubled their lead just before the hour through Miralem Pjanic’s cool finish in the box before Reza Ghoochannejhad pulled a goal back for Iran in the 82nd minute.
Avdija Vrsajevic restored Bosnia’s two-goal cushion with a fine strike a minute later.
