Edin Dzeko could face the wrath of Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini after he played for Bosnia-Herzegovina against Wales with a knee injury.

The 26-year-old forward ultimately played the full 90 minutes at Parc-y-Scarlets, and was a star performer in Bosnia's comfortable win, but Mancini is unlikely to have been impressed by his decision to risk his fitness so close to the start of a Premier League title defence and the end of the transfer window.

Bosnia coach Safet Susic said: "There was a question about him starting because he has a problem with his knee and maybe he should not have played. But I left it for him to decide whether he wanted to. There was a problem with his knee. We spoke and I said it was up to him."
