While Nigeria and Iran football officials are thinking about winning their opening game of the 2014 World Cup on June 16, Bosnia-Hezergovina coach Safeg Susic has different views of who qualifies from the group F, he has tipped his country and Argentina to go through.
“We will play the way we have always played because it would be wrong to change our approach now, although we are aware that our style may be a tactical gamble,” Susic told the national team’s official website.
“When you have players like (Miralem) Pjanic, (Zvjezdan) Misimovic, (Edin) Dzeko and (Vedad)Ibisevic, it would be unfair to the game itself and the fans not to unleash all that talent.”
The coach says they will not change their attacking approach during June’s world showpiece.
“It would be unfair to the game and above all to the fans if we were to constrain such talents,”Susic said.
“After all, we are playing to score more goals than our opponents and so far it has paid off.”
Susic said that Argentina are definitely the favourates in the group and should progress. “Argentina is by far the best team in our group and they should finish first.
“Our target is to join them in the next round.
“I think our chances are very realistic, because at this moment, both Nigeria and Iran are not better teams than us.
“I fully expect that we pass into the second round,” he added.
