Edin Dzeko has called for New Zealand referee Peter O'Leary to be sent home from the World Cup for wrongly disallowing a Bosnia goal in their defeat to Nigeria.
Bosnia were beaten 1-0 by Nigeria to mean they have been eliminated in the group stages of their first ever World Cup.
But their record scorer Dzeko had a goal chalked off at 0-0 when he was incorrectly deemed offside and before Peter Odemwingie put Nigeria ahead with a goal that the Manchester City striker feels should not have stood because of a challenge by Emmanuel Emenike on Emir Spahic in the build-up.
The Manchester City striker told newspapers: "The referee was shameful. 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.
"We tried to come back after the goal where there was obviously a foul on our captain and before when I scored a goal it was not offside. Nigeria played good as well, but the referee was shameful for this competition."
O'Leary, 42, who referees in the A-League, was officiating in his first World Cup match in Cuiaba.
