Bosnia are the only team in their first World Cup this year. I for one welcome them. They are starting to have a few players who are making into the big clubs. They have Dzeko of Man City, they have Pjanic of Roma and Begovic of Stoke who is known as one of the Premier Leagues best keepers. I know little about any other players in the team. A lot of the players play their football outside of Bosnia in fact only 1 person (the 2nd choice Keeper) actually plays for in Bosnia.
In Dzeko they have a goal scorer but more than that they have a world class striker who has won the league in both England and Germany. He is really dangerous and scores important goals.
In Pjanic they have a center midfielder who the world is chasing. This guy at 24 years old is about to make a big move if you ask me. already made his name in France and Italy a move to one of the big teams in Spain or England is due im sure. A classy midfield player who is on the verge of being world class. He is a massive player for this team.
The defence isn’t great but in Begovic they have a keeper who is proven and solid. He even scored a goal this year. I think its a matter of time before he moves on from Stoke and moves to a much larger team. The question for me is where does he go? Manchester United, Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea all have World Class Goalkeepers so a move outside the UK seems to make sense.
I think it comes down to Bosnia or Nigeria to get the 2nd spot in this group (Argentina will top the group for sure). The game between them is huge so a good result for Bosnia could see them in the 2nd stage. However I think Nigeria will qualify.
Star Man: Dzeko
One to watch: Pjanic
Prediction: Group Stage
