After the match, the head coach Samira Hurem said:
“This match had only one purpose, and that is to select players for the qualifications that await us in September. In this regard, we have fulfilled our goal and congratulations to the players on the victory. Several of them are seriously competing for the “A” team and I am glad about that. On the other hand, there are also players who are standard in the “A” team, and today they were not at the level they could be. That’s why, this is a good test for us to see how much our young players can do.”
The BH national team will play with Montenegro on 17th September as part of the qualifications for the World Cup, while on 21st September, they will play away with the national team of Malta.
