Argentina v Bosnia-Herzegovina

Duration: 2 hours, 40 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One HDLatest broadcast: on BBC One Wales

Gary Lineker presents live coverage of the Group F match between Argentina and Bosnia-Herzegovina, the first game of the tournament to be held at Rio's fabled Maracana stadium.

Argentina are among the favourites to lift the trophy after topping the South American qualifying group. They boast arguably the finest set of forwards in world football, with Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Napoli's Gonzalo Higuain offering formidable firepower. Messi's international displays have often been criticised but he has shone since current coach Alejandro Sabella handed him the captain's armband.

World Cup debutants Bosnia qualified in swashbuckling style, with Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko netting 10 of their 30 goals. However, it remains to be seen whether their defence can cope with Argentina's attacking prowess. Show less
