Bosnia Hercegovina head coach Safet Susic has declared himself happy with his side's first World Cup match, played last night at the historic Maracana in Rio de Janeiro- and thanked the host nation's fans for getting behind the World Cup debutants.

Susic's men went down 2-1 in the end to a slightly lacklustre Argentina team and were affored some partisan support from the 'neutrals' at the iconic ground, and the boss said after the game: "We knew that a part of the public, especially the Brazilians, would cheer for us, and I mentioned it to my team."

"We were greeted in a phenomenal way. I want to thank them for their support and hope not to disappoint them, but I want to ensure that you have not seen the best of us."

Bosnia's second match at the World Cup comes on Saturday against Nigeria in Cuiaba.
