Football: Injured Higuain doubtful starter for Argentina

Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain, who has had an ankle injury for the past month, is his team's only major worry for their World Cup opener against Bosnia-Herzegovina at the Maracana on Sunday.

In Thursday's training session, Napoli striker Higuain was replaced by Paris Saint-Germain's Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Inter Milan striker Rodrigo Palacio was also on the sidelines on Thursday after suffering an ankle injury in the 3-0 warm-up win over Trinidad last week.

Argentina are in Group F at the World Cup along with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Nigeria and Iran.
