Dzeko Mad at Referee O’Leary

Bosnia-Hercegovina striker Edin Dzeko is angry with referee Peter O’Leary.

The New Zealand official incorrectly ruled out an early strike from the Manchester City striker for offside in Saturday night’s loss to Nigeria.

Nigeria went ahead minutes later through an Osaze Odemwingie strike, sending Bosnia-Hercegovina out of their first World Cup.

When asked what happened to Bosnia’s campaign, Dzeko said: “The referee happened. We are going home, we are sad because of that, but the referee should go home, too. Because he changed the result, he changed the game, and that’s why we lost.

“The referee was shameful for this competition.”

The African champions claimed the game at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba 1-0.
