How many of us are ever going to forget that day in October? Bosnia was even with Greece on points (22), but had a considerably larger positive goal differential. Greece needed a draw or a loss by Bosnia, who was playing Lithuania, away, for the last match of Group G, European qualifiers for the World Cup in Brazil. The loss never came. Vedad Ibisevic broke the curse with a simple tap in, and the rest is history.
If you are familiar with U.S. college basketball – you have undoubtedly heard of the NIT Tournament. A sort of – silver lining championship – for teams that missed out on the big dance. U.S. Soccer and SUM are now mulling creating a similar international soccer tournament, set to take place during the summer of 2018.
It’s that time again. The designers over at adidas have released the new Bosnia and Herzegovina home kit. The jersey is composed of a mainly dark navy color, with a slightly lighter blue sash running from from the upper right shoulder to the lower left corner. On the side are the traditional three stripes, in gold.
