Ruthless Belgium beat Bosnia 4-3 in rollercoaster


This Saturday, October 7, 2017 (9:00 AM Pacific) Bosnia will host Belgium at the Stadion Grbavica for a match in the UEFA 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Azzurri, who will be one of eight teams to contest the UEFA play-offs in a bid to reach next year's tournament in Russian Federation, became certain of finishing second in Group G on Friday.

The result left the Belgians, who had already qualified for the 32-team tournament in Russian Federation as winners of Group H, with 25 points from nine games, 11 ahead of second-placed Bosnia who now have only a slim chance of clinching a play-off berth.

Greece struggled to beat Cyprus 2-1 in Nicosia on Saturday, but the victory of Belgium in Sarajevo with a 4-3 score means the Greeks have leapfrogged the Bosnians into the second spot of their World Cup qualifying group.

Bosnia turned the game around before the half-time interval thanks to strikes from Haris Medunjanin and Edin Visca. "It gave them extra energy", Carrasco said.

Given that Belgium had already qualified, it looked like Bosnia might pick up three crucial points but goals from Thomas Meunier, Michy Batshuayi, Jan Vertonghen and Yannick Carrasco secured the win for Roberto Martinez's men.

Bosnia must beat Estonia away in their final game on Tuesday and hope that other results go their way in order to keep alive any hopes of progressing.

Of those eight sides, the four to win their ties will join the nine group winners and hosts Russian Federation as Europe's representatives at the tournament.
