A foul on the attack's left from Sokratis Papstathopoulos give Nigeria what looked like a low percentage, set piece opportunity, but when Kalu Uche's kick caused confusion in Greek goalkeeper Alexandros Tzorvas, Nigeria had a 1-0, 15th minute lead.
The right footed ball from Uche, from about 35 yards out, hooked toward the far post as a Greek and Nigierian player elevated to win the ball. Tzorvas seemed to play for the eventual header instead of playing the ball, and when the service went over the crowd untouched, it was destined for the net. Kalu Ucke had scored Nigeria's first goal of the tournament.
Papstathopoulos was given a yellow card on the foul.
