World Cup - Last time they met: Argentina vs Bosnia and Herzegovina

Argentina get their World Cup campaign underway against Bosnia and Herzegovina tonight in what will be their third meeting, but what happened last time?

Argentina have won both previous encounters, with the most recent meeting less than a year ago as they defeated Bosnia 2-0 in a friendly in the USA.

A brace from Sergio Aguero saw La Albiceleste stroll to a comfortable victory and they will be hoping for a similar outcome in tonight's clash.

Both managers are still in charge and the sides will be much the same from their meeting in November.

Only Nicolas Otamendi and Tottenham's Erik Lamela have been left out of the World Cup squad from those who played the Zmajevi at the end last year.

The entire Bosnian lineup from their last meeting have made their squad for this summer's tournament and only Zoran Kvrzic is left out from those who featured.

The game could pan out in a similar fashion though Argentina are given a huge boost in that Lionel Messi back to full fitness after he missed the game eight months ago.

Bosnia are appearing at their first ever World Cup and come into the tournament in fine form, winning their past four matches in preparation for tonight's opener.

They will be boosted by the fact that the Argentinians have struggled against European sides at the World Cup in recent years, and they have only won two from their last nine against teams from Europe.

La Albiceleste will be confident though with their deadly strike force and come into the tournament as second favourites as they look to win their third World Cup this summer.

Edin Dzeko will lead the line for the Dragons and will hope to outscore Manchester City teammate Sergio Aguero who will spearhead the Argentina attack, as he did so successfully the last time they met.
