Argentina 2, Bosnia-Herzegovina 1: Gifted by an early own-goal and sparked by a second-half score by obscure journeyman Lionel Messi, the powder-blue striped juggernaut that is Argentina wins an opener well-played by both teams.  B-H played an exciting, end-to-end style that put constant pressure on the group favorites, a nice way to debut in their first-ever World Cup.  Through 11 games in 2014, there have been 37 goals scored, as opposed to only 18 goals scored at the same point in 2010, and only one game has seen fewer than three combined goals scored.
