MUST-SEE GAME

Argentina vs. Bosnia

Rio de Janeiro’s famed Maracana stadium faces an invasion from neighbor and rival Argentina, whose fans were already getting rowdy on Copacabana beach on Saturday. Argentina, with a surplus of attacking options, is a big favorite in Group F. But its defense could be tested by World Cup debutant Bosnia, which scored 30 goals in just 10 qualifying matches.

PLAYER TO WATCH

Karim Benzema, France

The star forward takes on increased responsibility in a relatively inexperienced lineup in the absence of captain Franck Ribery, who was ruled out of the World Cup with a back injury. The first test comes against Honduras, a huge underdog but an opponent that comes with a reputation for bruising play — Coach Luis Suarez has faced accusations that his team plays dirty.
