Our national team played an excellent first half and gained a two-goal advantage, although with a bit of sporting luck, it could have achieved a more convincing result. Already in the 5th minute, two good chances for the Dragons, but on both occasions the Iceland goalkeeper came out as the winner in duels with Amir Hadžiahmetović and Ermedin Demirović. In the 10th minute, Amir Hadžiahemtović made a great cross from the right side, but Ermedin Demirović’s header was blocked by Icelandic goalkeeper Runar Runarsson on the goal line. However, Runarsson capitulated in the 14th minute. After a shot by Smail Prevljak, the ball reached Rade Krunić, who scored the leading goal for Dragons from 7-8 meters. Despite the result advantage, Faruk Hadžibegić’s team continued its attacks. In the 31st minute, Siniša Saničanin had a good header, but Runarsson kicked it into the corner. The offensive game paid off again in the 40th minute. Amar Dedić made a great pass on the right side and crossed, Smail Prevljak shot, and Rade Krunić ran onto the bounced ball and scored his second goal of the match. In the 44th minute, Jusuf Gazibegović shot brilliantly from over 20 meters, and the goalkeeper put the ball over the goal with his last effort.
In the continuation of the game, the pace of the game dropped, but in the 63rd minute, Amar Dedić brought the Bilino Polje Stadium to a fever. He pulled the ball into the middle from the right side and scored the third goal with a precise shot from 20 meters and rewarded himself for a great game in tonight’s match.
