Bosnia-Herzegovina vs. Argentina: Key Decisions for Safet Susic
Amel Emric/Associated Press

The people of Bosnia-Herzegovina are counting the hours to the moment when their national team will line up at the World Cup for the first time in the country's history.

Even though this will be their debut in a major football tournament, there is no pressure on the Dragons.

Expectations back home are big, but, ultimately, most Bosnians are aware of the team's limitations and simply reaching the World Cup is a victory for a country that exited the war less then 20 years ago.

However, one person who will absorb the pressure is Bosnia head coach Safet Susic. Public opinion on the iconic player as a coach is often split between praise for his achievement and criticism for tactical naivety.

Sergio Aguero scored twice when Argentina won the last match between the two sides in a friendly in St Louis, Missouri in November. Even without Lionel Messi, the South American side dominated that match, exposing all the flaws Susic's team have.

Now the Bosnia coach has a chance to prove himself on the biggest stage, but can he surprise his opposite number Alejandro Sabella just seven months after they first met?

Here are some key decisions for Susic ahead of the Argentina match on Sunday.
