Argentina aiming to get off to a flyer

ARGENTINA embark on an expected breeze through World Cup Group F tomorrow against a talented if inexperienced Bosnia-Herzgovina side playing in the finals for the first time.

The sides meet at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro where Lionel Messi's side, boasting one of the world's best attacks, will be hoping to return for the final on July 13 in search of their nation's third world title. Argentina trained yesterday with Gonzalo Higuain emulating the role Bosnia's striker Edin Dzeko will play tomorrow, but midfielder Fernando Gago said the key to success would be the pace of their star-studded forward line.

"We know that in the final quarter few teams can play at the speed of Angel [Di Maria], Kun [Aguero], Leo [Messi].The precision they have at such speed marks the difference," Gago added.
