In the first 35 minutes, an equal game was seen between the two penalty areas, without major opportunities. Only in the 36th minute, the guests made a quick counter-attack, and Kristina Mashkova sent the ball to the fast-footed Nella Korovkina, who escaped our defence and sent the ball into the net for 0:1.
Russia scored the second goal in the 45th minute. Nadezhda Smirnova made a free kick from more than 20 meters and hit the crossbar, but the ball bounced off to Anne Kozhnikova's who scored by her head.
And in the second half, the first opportunity was turned into a goal. From the corner, Smirnova sent the ball to the first post for Alsa Abdullina, who passes it into the net for 0:3. The fourth goal was scored by Kozhnikova in the 85th minute, assisted by Natalia Morozova.
The national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina will continue the qualifications in November with home matches against Denmark and Malta.
