We believe in our qualities and expect victory

The “A” national team players of Bosnia and Herzegovina performed official training session today ahead of the match with Iceland at the Laugardalsvöllur Stadium in Reykjavik, before which a press conference was held.

Media representatives were addressed by the head coach Meho Kodro and goalkeeper Ibrahim Šehić.

Among other things, Kodro said:

“We expect a difficult match. We know the opponent well and we know what situation they are in, but we are also in a position where we have to look for points and that is how we will position ourselves. We have in front of us a good team that may not have been lucky in the last matches. We respect them, but we believe in our abilities and in winning tomorrow’s match.”

The head coach also added:

“We watched their matches in the qualifiers, they look solid. They have interesting players and they can cause us problems if we leave them space. I expect us to disable those qualities. It won’t be easy, but we came to play a quality match and to win.”

When asked if there will be changes in the line-up compared to the previous match, head coach Meho Kodro said:

“There will be some changes, but we can’t talk about that now. We came out more offensive against Liechtenstein, but tomorrow we will face a different opponent. We will adapt a little to the opponent, but we will pay more attention to our strengths. So, there will be changes, but not really radical ones compared to the last match.”

Ibrahim Šehić stated:

“Our situation is such that we go from match to match and each one is the most important for us. Our goal is to get into a situation where we can decide for ourselves and it is important that we won three points against Liechtenstein. A completely different match and a different opponent awaits us tomorrow. Iceland has a good team; we have a young team and every match is important to us. We will do our best to win tomorrow.”

When asked if the players are under pressure, Šehić answered:

“There is always pressure when playing for the national team, but it is also the most beautiful feeling. Nothing compares to the feeling of fulfilling people in your own country. There is pressure, we got ourselves into this situation, and we will get ourselves out. I hope that tomorrow with that energy and positive attitude, we will go out on the pitch and win three points.”

The Iceland-Bosnia and Herzegovina match is scheduled for tomorrow at 18:45 h local time (20:45 CET).
