Bosnia-Herzegovina's Zvjezdan Misimovic believes that his side can take positives from their 2-1 defeat against Argentina into their match with Nigeria this weekend.

Zvjezdan Misimovic believes that Bosnia-Herzegovina can take positives from their defeat against Argentina into their crunch Group F encounter with Nigeria on Saturday.

The World Cup newcomers fell two goals behind against La Albiceleste in their opening group game, before pulling one back late on.

"We gave a good account of ourselves in our first game," Misimovic told FIFA.com. "Of course it was completely uncharted territory for us.

"We shouldn't have gone behind the way we did with an own goal, but we managed to get back into the game. Generally we wouldn't measure ourselves against a team of Argentina's standing, but if we continue to play as we did against them then we can definitely achieve something here in Brazil."

Bosnia will follow up this weekend's game with a match against Iran next week.
