Fixtures

June 25 v Iran (Salvador)

Strengths

The combination of Edin Dzeko and Vedad Ibisevic form a formidable attacking partnership. Roma’s Miralem Pjanic provides creativity from midfield and Asmir Begovic is solid in goal. Boss Safet Susic will not overcomplicate tactics, he will hope to carry on the momentum from qualifying and just let his team play with clear heads.

Weaknesses

Despite a few quality players, the squad lacks depth and they have no plan B. They are the only debutants this year so they lack World Cup experience.

Key Player

Edin Dzeko. The Manchester City striker scored a third of Bosnia & Herzegovina’s goals in qualifying and hit some superb form near the near of the season for his club.

Prediction

They could sneak through to the last 16, but could fall just short. Their second game against Nigeria could decide their fate.

Odds

150/1
