Bosnia's World Cup Debut Ruined with an Own Goal Inside Three Minutes

Bosnia own goal against Argentina-c

Bosnia and Herzegovina played its first official FIFA-recognized match in 1995. 19 years later the nation played in its first World Cup as an independent nation. It waited less than three minutes to score a goal. Unfortunately it was an own-goal by Sead Kolašinac, as he deflected a free kick by Lionel Messi into his own net at the back post past Asmir Begovic.

It was the quickest own-goal scored in World Cup history and the third in the tournament so far through 10+ games.

Conversely, this is a dream start for Argentina one of the favorites to win the tournament.
