Will Lionel Messi turn up at the 2014 World Cup? While Argentinian hopes are pinned on the Barcelona man, the Brazilian public will be hoping to see another no-show from the iconic star.

Leo and his teammates face Bosnia-Herzegovina during their tournament opener, a match that shouldn't be taken lightly. Alejandro Sabella's men will be hoping for a fast start against the European outfit who are making their debut in the World Cup.

How will the game play out? We simulated the match using an Xbox One copy of FIFA 14 to find out.


Argentina vs. Bosnia-Herzegovina: FIFA 14 Highlights

A close match, there's no doubt about it, but one both sides will feel they should have won. While Argentina dominated for the most part, Bosnia-Herzegovina's late penalty provided an opportunity to make the difference. It wasn't to be. Both sides march on with a point, certainly not the worst result for either.

How will this one go in real life? Let us know your thoughts below.
