The Argentines got off to a perfect start through Sead Kolasinac’s own goal in the third minute to take them 1-0 up against Bosnia Herzegovina. Then in the 65th minute Messi struck with a great shot that bounced the ball perfectly off the inside of the post and into the goal, taking them up to 2-0. In the 85th minute, a goal by Vedad Ibisevic confirmed that Bosnia Herzegovina were not to be underestimated, but Argentina held firm and went on to win.
