Susic, Keen On Advancing In The Second Round

Susic, Keen On Advancing In The Second Round

Despite being a debutant in the upcoming 2014 World Cup, Safet Susic is confident that Bosnia and Herzegovina can put up a challenge against its group contenders such as Iran and Nigeria.


After submitting his final list of qualified players, which include Edin Dezko, Asmir Begovic and Miralem Pjanic, the squad’s head honcho shared that he does not succumb to the idea that Nigeria and Iran are the better squads. And it seems that even world cup oddsagree with Susic’s statement. In 12BET, the Dragons are considered as one of the heavy favorites next to title contender, Argentina. The team is expected to emerge as the group’s runner with values pegged at 7.00.


The above-mentioned odds tend to coincide with Susic’s hopes of advancing into the second round of the competition and land a spot in the top 16.


Bosnia and Herzegovina had a successful campaign during the qualifiers. They only lost once in their ten (10) encounters and were able to build a strong goal difference against Greece.


Needless to say, the above-mentioned success was crucial to molding their high self-esteem and confidence, which was further increased when they dominated the friendly against Ivory Coast, thanks to Edin Dzeko’s double.


Ivory Coast is the highest FIFA-ranked African country. Beating them becomes a premonition of the surprises that Bosnia and Herzegovina can bring into the table. Indeed, they may be the competition’s green horns. But who knows what this squad can do. They might come up with another surprise—a surprise that will certainly blow the minds of many.
