The whites & sky blues have won the FIFA World Cup 2 times [1978 & 1986]. Last time they won it with Argentine legend Diego Maradona. The captain of Argentina Lionel Messi has promised the Argentine fans that he will win the cup this time.
On the other hand, the Dragons have not won this tournament so far. This is the first appearance of Bosnia & Herzegovina in this competition. On 14th of May 1998, they faced their biggest defeat in Football history by 0–5.
The attack of the whites & sky blues is considered as the strongest in this whole competition. They have players like Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel di maria, Gonzalo Higuain. But defense is the biggest problem of this national team on which the they are working very hard.
So far, both teams have played just two international games total out of which both were won by Lionel Messi’s squad. This means this will be third head to head of both teams at international level.
