Sergio Aguero: 'We were fortunate to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina'

Argentina striker Sergio Aguero believes that his side were lucky to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina in their opening match at the World Cup.

Argentina striker Sergio Aguero has expressed his belief that his side were fortunate to take all three points from their World Cup opener against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Alejandro Sabella's side got their campaign off to a winning start with a 2-1 victory, which was aided early on as Sead Kolasinac turned the ball into his own net.

Lionel Messi then provided a moment of magic as he doubled his side's lead in the second half, but a late goal from Vedad Ibisevic left Argentina hanging on for the victory.

Aguero is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News: "The game became difficult as we did not have control of the game. Luck helped us today."

Argentina face Iran in their next Group F game on Saturday.
