National football team of B&H qualified for the play-offs for the European Championship that will be played next year in France. Tonight in the final match of the group qualifications, Dragons defeated Cyprus in Nicosia with the score 3: 2.
The first 10 minutes of the match passed in domination of Cyprus, but they did not manage to make a shot on our goal.
And then in the 13th minute, one millimeter deeper ball from Miralem Pjanic to Ervin Zukanovic, who passed the ball for Medunjanin who scored for leadership of our team and opened the doors for play offs.
And as usual, the mistake is always followed by the punishment. Efrem shot the ball, Begovic made the same mistake as in the match against Belgium in Zenica, the ball went to captain Charalambides who did not find it difficult to shake the empty net for the score 1: 1 after 32 minutes.
Team of Cyprus reached the turn over after 41 minutes. Demetriou sharply hooked the ball and Mytidisu scored for 2: 1.
Only 2 minutes later, Medunjanin tied the score with his second goal.
We did not see much of excitement in the second half of the match. Again, same as in the match against Wales, Mehmed Bazdarevic made extraordinary wise move and introduced Milan Djuric in the match, in the 61st minute.
Corpulent attacker of our national football team brought the victory with his score in the 67th minute and thus sealed the placement in the play offs.
