Greece claimed its first World Cup win, rallying to beat 10-man Nigeria 2-1 in a World Cup Group B match on Thursday.

Vassilis Torosidis poked home a loose ball in the 71st minute after a mistake from Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama to make history for Greece, which had lost all four previous World Cup matches and never had scored a goal.
