Bosnia and Herzegovina Women's "A" national football team lost the first friendly match against France's "B" team 0-1 today at the FFBIH training center in Zenica. Besides general audience, the honorary Football Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina president Ivan Osim watched the game.
After the match coach Samira Hurem said: "I praise my players on their effort. We planned for Alisa Spahic to be in the starting lineup, but unfortunately she injured herself during the training session so we had no other choice but to change our initial plan. Nevertheless, we played well and showed that we're a quality team. I'm sorry that we received that goal in the final moments of the game. Congratulations to France on today's victory."
Both teams will play another match at the same venue on Thursday, April 6th at 16:30 hours.
