BRAZIL, Sao Paulo - Following the drama of last night's action in the Fifa World Cup, tonight's fixtures could dish up plenty of goals.

The world will also get its first view of superstar Lionel Messi at this year's world cup.

It's fair to say there are three major superstars the world wants to see at this year's Fifa World Cup.

Neymar, who didn't disappoint, scoring two goals in Brazil's 3-1 win on opening night over Croatia, Cristiano Ronaldo who is in action tomorrow when Portugal take on Germany, and Lionel Messi.

The Argentine is up today as his team take on Bosnia Herzegovina.

While Messi has struggled in world cup gone by, many feel he's at the right stage of his career now to convert his club success into international success on the biggest stage.

With teammates like Sergio Aguero and Angel di Maria alongside him, it could be a long night for their opponents.

Coach Alejandro Sabella has been gifted with what most would call an easy game first up, giving his team the perfect opportunity to find their feet in the competition.

Also today, Switzerland take on Ecuador and France play Honduras.
