Kick-off 7.00pm local (11.00pm BST) Man of the Match: Lionel Messi (Argentina) Assistant referees: William Torres (El Salvador) Juan Zumba (El Salvador) Fourth official: Djamel Haimoudi (Algeria) Fifth official: Abdelhalk Etchiali (Algeria) The two teams had met in two previous matches, both in friendlies, most recently in 2013, both won by Argentina. Bosnia and Herzegovina conceded three minutes into their World Cup debut, when Lionel Messi's free kick from the left was flicked on by Marcos Rojo and bounced off Sead Kolašinac into the net for an own goal. In the second half, Messi played a one-two with substitute Gonzalo Higuaín and shot home from the edge of the penalty area with his left foot into the bottom-right corner. With five minutes remaining in normal time, Bosnia and Herzegovina pulled one back, when Senad Lulić's pass found substitute Vedad Ibišević to score the country's first ever World Cup goal, shooting under the goalkeeper with his left foot. Kolašinac's own goal after two minutes and nine seconds broke the record for the fastest own goal in the history of the FIFA World Cup, surpassing Carlos Gamarra's own goal (two minutes and 46 seconds) in Paraguay's first group stage match against England at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
