Maracaná receives Argentine makeover as fans pack stadium

More than 20,000 Argentina fans packed Rio de Janeiro's iconic Maracaná stadium for a chance to see Lionel Messi and Co. start their World Cup campaign, as the 'Albiceleste' took on Bosnia & Herzegovina in the Group F curtain-raiser.

The famous old ground, site of the 1950 final, was taken over by blue and white national team shirts, on a glorious day boasting temperatures of around 28°C earlier in the city.

Argentine fans had prepared for the game at Copacabana beach, with groups of friends, families and children making the most of the sunshine alongside supporters of Brazil and other nations.

As well as the national colours, shirts from Boca Juniors, River Plate, San Lorenzo, Racing Club, Talleres de Córdoba, Atlético Tucumán, Colón de Santa Fe, Chacarita, Crucero del Norte, Rosario Central, Estudiantes de La Plata y Lanús to name just a few mixed together as club loyalty took second place to supporting the 'Albiceleste'.
