Bosnia midfielder Haris Medunjanin claims Lionel Messi is ‘impossible’ to defend against and believes only the Argentina striker can stop himself.

Messi scored a superb goal in Argentina’s 2-1 win over Bosnia in their World Cup opener at the Maracana on Sunday.

Medunjanin came on as a second-half substitute and admits he hopes Messi can guide Argentina to victory in the World Cup this summer.

“It's impossible to stop him. The only player who can stop Messi is Messi himself,” said Medunjanin.

“For an hour he was quiet but that is Messi, he waits for the right moment and when the team needs him, he stands up and shows his class with a goal like that.

“I hope for his sake that he can win the World Cup. It is the only prize he is missing and if he can win the World Cup he will go down as one of the best players to ever play football.”
