Messi satisfied after 'nervous' Argentina debut

Argentina captain Lionel Messi has declared himself satisfied with a 2-1 win in the nation's 2014 World Cup debut against Bosnia-Herzegovina, while admitting that the first game of a tournament is always a nervy occasion for players.

"The opening match creates a lot of anxiety, but we won and managed our first objective. Bosnia are a great team and we know we have to improve things, but it was key to start with three points," he explained to reporters after the final whistle.

Messi underlined the importance of his goal, stating that getting a second was crucial in order to "secure the result"; adding that scoring was a special moment for him.

"In the first half we had more of the ball, in the second we gave the ball away but with one more man up front we coulld unbalance them," he stated.

"We are still relaxed and searching for our dream."

Messi and Argentina are back in action on Saturday, when they play Iran.
