Greece and 10-man Nigeria remain deadlocked at 1-1 after 60 minutes of their Group B match at the World Cup.
Kalu Uche put Nigeria ahead in the 16th minute, curling a free kick in from 35 yards (meters), while striker Dimitris Salpingidis equalized for Greece just before halftime with a right-footed drive that deflected off Nigeria defender Lukman Haruna and into the net.
Uche almost put Nigeria back ahead just after the break with a neat flick from the touchline, but Greece 'keeper Alexandros Tzorvas pushed the ball over the crossbar.
Nigeria was reduced to 10 men in the 33rd after midfielder Sani Kaita received a red card for pushing and kicking Greece's Vassilis Torosidis after the ball was out of play.
