  • Germany hammers Portugal 4-0

The FIFA 2014 World Cup experienced its first draw as Iran held Group F rivals Nigeria in Curitiba.

Nigeria dominated possession but created few chances against a disciplined side managed by ex-Manchester United coach Carlos Queiroz.

The Super Eagles’ best opportunities came in the first half when Ogenyi Onazi fired a yard wide before Ahmed Musa went close with a free-kick.

Iran’s Reza Ghoochannejad forced a great save from Vincent Enyeama, reports the BBC.

And in an earlier game, thomas Muller scored a hat-trick as Germany stunned group rivals Portugal, who had defender Pepe sent off.

It was a brilliant display by the three-time champions, who took the lead when Muller fired in from the spot after Joao Pereira fouled Mario Gotze.

Mats Hummels made it 2-0 with a powerful header, before Pepe saw red for pushing his head at Muller.

Muller added his second with a sidefoot finish and completed the impressive victory by poking in from close range.
