Bosnia and Herzegovina vs Iran World Cup 2014 player ratings: Edin Dezko or Ashkan Dejagah - who rated better?

Player ratings from the Group F clash

Iran's dreams of a place in the World Cup knockout stages were ended by an impressive Bosnia and Herzegovina team.

Safet Susic's team showed they were unlucky to have already been eliminated from the competition after they put in an excellent performance against Iran.

Edin Dzeko, Miralem Pjanic and Avdija Vrsajevic were all on the scoresheet for a Bosnian team that was in control from start to finish.

Iran needed a victory to progress - as long as Argentina beat Nigeria - but they looked overawed by the occasion.

After Dzeko opened the scoring after 23 minutes Iran had a chance to immediately level, but Masoud Shojaei's strike cannoned back off the crossbar.

Pjanic gave Bosnia a 2-0 lead but Charlton striker Reza Ghoochannejhad thought he had given Iran some hope with a goal eight minutes from the end.

But Vrsajevic ended that before it even began, drilling home a minute later.
