FIFA World Cup 2014 TV schedule and matches: June 15 highlighted by Argentina-Bosnia

Ronald Martinez

Day four of the World Cup features opening matches in Group E, and the tournament debut of Argentina.

The fourth day of play at the 2014 World Cup features two important opening matches in Group E, and the debut of Argentina as they face what could be their toughest test in the group stages.

The day begins with Switzerland facing Ecuador as the Swiss look to prove they are worthy of their seeded spot in the draw. The Swiss are predicted to top Group E, but they're still a bit of an unknown quantity, at least on the international stage. A strong performance against Ecuador would silence some of the critics, and put them on their way to a potential place in the next round.

Group E play continues with France against Honduras. The French won't just be looking to improve on an atrocious campaign in South Africa, they'll be hoping to cement their status as dark horse contenders to win it all with a big win in their opening match -- Honduras will have to work very hard to keep them at bay. Or hope they do the France thing and implode for no reason, which would work as well.

In the final match of the day, one of the tournament favorites Argentina begin their group stage play against Bosnia. On paper, it should be the best match of the day with Bosnia a team capable of giving La Albiceleste. Of course, Bosnia will need to be stout defensively, against a dangerous Argentine attack led by Lionel Messi. The Barcelona star has a lot to prove after a subpar club season, but his standards, and would love nothing more than to lead his nation to the World Cup.
