Welcome to Wednesday's edition of our daily 2014 World Cup viewing guide for D.C. Every morning, we'll examine the schedule and suggest where in the Washington area you can watch the best or most interesting match of the day.

The match of the day: Argentina vs. Nigeria (noon). Lionel Messi, fresh from his last-minute heroics against Iran, faces a Nigerian side that has not allowed a goal in this tournament. Nigeria needs a point to make it to the next round; Argentina qualified after winning its first two matches.

Where to watch: El Patio in Rockville hosts huge family-friendly viewing parties with great Argentine food, wine and beer. At lunch, a sausage sandwich and two empanadas costs $5.65. Las Brasas in Arlington and Del Campo in Chinatown also support La Albiceleste. DC United is hosting a viewing party at Elephant and Castle at 19th and I streets NW, complete with drink specials. (They will also show the Bosnia-Iran match.) There are even more ideas on our list of World Cup food and drink deals.

Also on TV today: Bosnia vs. Iran (noon), Ecuador vs. France (4 p.m.), Honduras vs. Switzerland (4 p.m.)
