The final game on Day 4 of the 2014 World Cup saw the long-awaited introduction of Lionel Messi as Argentina met Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The South Americans were ahead inside three minutes, albeit with a slice of fortune, as a free-kick bounced off Sead Kolasinac and into his own net.


The Maracana erupted in the second half when the Argentines doubled their lead via this special strike from Lionel Messi.


However, a tense ending was in store, as Vedad Ibisevic scored with five minutes left.


Argentina held on, though, to secure a 2-1 win in Group F against the only tournament debutants in Brazil.
