Bosnia-Herzegovina national team was only half successful in this week’s double program in the World cup qualifiers. They lost to Belgium 4-0 on Friday night but managed to defeat Cyprus at home (2-0) four days later and to keep their WC hopes alive.
This was the second time in two years that Bosnia visited Brussels and lose a competitive match in Belgium’s capital. After solid start, they conceded unlucky own goal by Emir Spahić and things went downhill. Belgium scored three more until the end of the game and the Dragons had to admit that their opponent was just too strong this time.
But, they were afraid of rainy Monday night in Zenica as well, because Cyprus was visiting and that was almost the same team that beat Bosnia on the last occasion in Euro 2016 qualifiers. This time, the Bosnians were focused for whole 90 minutes and won 2-0, both goals scored by their skipper Edin Džeko.
Next month (November 13th) Bosnia-Herzegovina will travel to another difficult away match, this time to Greece.
