Bosnia-Herzegovina look to impress at first World Cup


Bosnia will be making their first appearance at a major international tournament this summer since gaining independence from Yugoslavia in 1992.

With Edin Dzeko and Vedad Ibisevic scoring 18 of the team’s 30 goals to form one of the most prolific strike partnerships in qualifying, Bosnia-Herzegovina will fancy their chances against Group F rivals Argentina, African champions Nigeria and Iran.

The defense is arguably the weaker part of Bosnia’s side and a lack of depth may also hurt them as the tournament wears on, with coach Safet Susic acknowledging after qualifying that he has few first class experienced back-ups to choose from.

Bosnia will first lock horns with Argentina in Rio de Janeiro on June 15.
