Bosnia-Herzegovina, playing its first World Cup, starts their campaign against two-time champion, Argentina. Argentina has a dearth of attacking display with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Gonzalo Higuain in an attacking formation alongside Lionel Messi.
The 26-year old will have a point to prove as he leads his side out in all important group tie. Pitted alongside him is Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, who scored 10 of the Bosnian team’s 30 goals in qualifying and is nicknamed “The Diamond.” So how would the two strikers will line-up? We preview the two players as they go head-to-head.
Even with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Gonzalo Higuain and Angel di Maria in the line-up; the team’s attacking personnel will be none other than Lionel Messi. The Barcelona forward may not have been full flow as far as the international colours are concerned but FIFA 2014 World Cup presents a beautiful opportunity to prove the critics wrong. Coach Sabella will have his tactics revolving around Leo Messi as one can expect Bosnia to have a busy evening.
Bosnia and Herzegovina might not feature big stars as their counterparts but Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko can lead his side to glory. Dzeko is high on confidence with a flurry of goals during the qualifying phase and will look to add more during the World Cup.
