Leave it to Messi to inspire his side to victory. He scored the second goal for Argentina in their 2 – 1 defeat of Bosnia Herzegovina.
The Argentines did not play their customary style of breathtakingly flowing football. But with the help of an own goal from a cross by Messi and that brilliant second, they managed to edge out their opponents who managed to pull a goal back late in the second half.
Bosnia Herzegovina, on the other hand, gave a good account of themselves in the World Cup and did stifle the Argentine flow for much of the game.
Argentina need to step it up if they are to remain one of the World Cup favorites to go all the way that final and win it.
