The manager of Bosnia & Herzegovina has elected the 23-men squad for the tournament in Brazil - and among them is Tino Sven Susic - Safet's relative.

It has been official now - Bosnians have got the list of players that will travel to represent the country on the Mundial. 

Although some of the home fans wouldn't agree on the list, mostly because of this youngster who doesn't have plenty of international experience, that could change if they succeed in beating one of the favourites - Argentina.

Tino Sven Susic was a part of Belgium U18 and U19 in 2010. Realizing he will not become a member of their senior team, he accepted a call-up from his uncle for a friendly against Egypt in March 2014. 

That was his only cap for Zmajevi until the list has been revealed. Some fans allude on nepotism and think his performances weren't good enough to already make him a part of the national side. 

As he was not given the opportunity at Standard Liege, the 22-year-old moved to Hajduk Split in 2012. He is now, one of the most important players in the Croatian team which fight for the first title since 2005.

It's really obvious that this is unfair towards other players that have competed for the place in the squad. What should these players do? Clearly, more than just solid performances will have to do. Until the next competition, they will have to risk everything to ensure a place among Susic's call-ups.
