In the 74th minute, in the penalty area of Ukraine, Amar Dedić was thrown down, and Faruk Duraković reduced the result from the penalty kick to 3:2.
A minute before the end of the match, the BH team stayed with ten players on the field, as Belmin Bobarić received the second yellow card.
After finishing the match, the head coach Zoran Erbez stated:
“Ukraine and Iceland showed in this tournament that they were quality teams. We knew they were awkward and tough opponents. We did not succeed, especially today, to match our opponent. It’s inconceivable that during the match we made so many mistakes in some simple situations. We received goals due to misunderstandings between the players. Maybe we did not deserve more, even though this was not the real face of these players today.”
In the second match of this group, Iceland won the team of Gibraltar with 8:0.
Ukraine won first place in the group with 7 points, Iceland is second with 5, and BH third with 4. Last Gibraltar did not win any points.
