- Argentina v Bosnia
Messi hits the side netting as Argentina catch Bosnia on the break.
Ibišević squeezes a shot past Romero at his near post to score Bosnia's first ever World Cup goal.
Lionel Messi had played 623 minutes of WorldCup football since scoring his other WC goal (v Serbia in 2006).
That goal really has made the difference. Argentina look a different side now.
Brilliant stuff from Messi, lashed from the edge of the box and off the inside of the post.
Aguero skies a shot after Di Maria and Messi finally link together on the edge of the box.
Hajrović curls another shot towards goal - again Romero has it covered.
Hajrović bends a free kick around the wall but Romero gathers the shot easily,
Fair play to Bosnia, though. They didn't collapse after conceding early on.
Very disappointing first half for Argentina. They failed to build on their early bit of luck and have hardly got their game going.
Romero has to be quick to block an effort from Hajrović. Brave stop from the Argentina keeper.

Sead Kolašinac own goal - turned it into his own net after Aguero's free kick had been flicked on by Rojo.

@MarcIles I'm going 3-1.— @DannyW91 15 June 2014
Matuidi drives a shot over after another French break - they could have had half a dozen goals tonight.
@MarcIles in general commentating been on par with the refereeing in this tournament.— @andy_sellers 15 June 2014
Benzema angled drive - great finish - could he be claiming a hat-trick??
Benzema denied by Valladares again - excellent save from close range.
Boos ring out - the goalline technology initially said "no goal" but then changed its mind as the deflection off the keeper was taken into consideration. Very confusing for the spectators.
It's an own goal - bizarre situation. Benzema's shot came off the post and didn't cross the line but then came off the Honduras keeper and seemed to bounce over the line. The video replay confirms it did cross the line eventually.
Valladares pushes away Valbuena's free kick in the final action of the half.
Benzema will take it.
Shove was on Pogba, who Palacios got involved with earlier on.
Second yellow for Palacios too - he's off
Penalty to France!
Benzema has a goalbound shot blocked - could have passed square to Griezmann who was free.
Matuidi gets behind Honduras again, his cross deflected behind for a corner.
RT @fmuamba: #FRA look a decent side. Moving the ball back to front nicely #FifaWorldCup— @CobiFresh 15 June 2014
It has all kicked off - Pogba kicks out at Palacios. It's only a yellow but I think he's very lucky. Replays show Palacios stamping on him too.
Both players booked.
Benzema heads over the top after a brilliant counter. France playing some excellent stuff.
Griezmann hits the bar with a header for France. They are all over Honduras here.
Cabaye strikes from distance after some good work from Valbuena - well wide.
The French kit looks more like Scotland.
Valladares makes a great save to push Maitudi's shot on to the crossbar.
Honduras have already given away half a dozen free kicks. Don't fancy their chances of keeping a full compliment of players.
@MarcIles 2-1 honduras— @wittonweavers 15 June 2014
Decent start from the French. They have settled quite quickly.
After a great tackle from Behrami at one end to halt an Ecuador attack, Switzerland counter and Seferovic taps in from close range in the last seconds.
Arroyo's free kick forces Benagl into an awkward save - took a big deflection.
Then at the other end, Swiss keeper Benagl gets caught trying to sweep up the loose ball and Valencia nearly gets an empty goal to aim at. Defender gets back to clear.
Shaqiri hits the side netting after a great break from Switzerland. It was three on two - but maybe the final pass wasn't good enough.
Drmic supplied the finishing touch but looks like it was offside.
Switzerland have the ball in the net but it's offisde.
Valencia goes very close to a second goal, driving a shot from the edge of the box just over the crossbar.
The half-time substitute equalising for Switzerland. Paredes booked for Ecuador.
Rodrig's cross, Mehmedi's header - almost an instant replay of the first goal.
Ayovi slices a shot well wide from about 20 yards - signalling half time. Hasn't been a classic.
Inler has a decent effort from the edge of the box, good save from Dominguez.
@MarcIles obviously knows more about general knowledge than he does about football...— @Boothy9469 15 June 2014
Behrami heads towards goal from another corner, saved by Dominguez. Marking has been shocking so far.
Clarke Carlisle has just been questioning why Jackson Martinez can't get into the Ecuador side... there is a simple reason, he's Colombian.
Shakiri corner - Stocker heads towards goal at the near post but over the bar.
RT @FourFourTwo: Gooool!! #ECU 1-0 up through Enner Valencia and this man is very happy indeed: http://t.co/QAeMHHShdF— @3rdCoastSoccer 15 June 2014
Ayovi swings a great cross in and Valencia heads home unmarked in the six yard box. Easy finish.
Cagey start, really. Switzerland playing possession football but Ecuador going more direct.
Shaquiri goes close for Switzerland - big things expected from him.

@MarcIles going for a suprise result 2 1 #ECU— @Boothy9469 15 June 2014
Switzerland v Ecuador up first. Not the most glamorous fixture in the world - summed up by the fact we have Clark Carlisle on co-commentary. Should at least widen the vocabulary...
Good afternoon - three games to go at today.
