  • Bosnia and Herzegovina make their first major international tournament showing this summer since gaining independence from Yugoslavia in 1992, and could be one of the dark horses to cause a stir in the 2014 World Cup.

    Eight wins and a draw from their 10 qualifying games outline Bosnia as serious contenders to cause more than one upset in the tournament, Paddy Power starting them at 21/10 to progress to the last 16 from Group F.

    Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic feels that the side he will represent in Brazil is Bosnia's strongest ever, the Stoke stopper full of optimism for the task ahead.

    Begovic told the Daily Telegraph: "With our appreciation of the past, we recognise we have a duty as footballers to represent our country in the best possible way, to give the people something to cheer about and put smiles on their faces.

    "It is the best Bosnia ever and we are making the most of it, so for that reason it doesn't altogether surprise that we're in Brazil. We carry a huge responsibility. But that's just the way we like it."

    Expectations sit a personal high for the side that boasts considerable talent including Roma playmaker Miralem Pjanic, Stuttgart forward Vedad Ibisevic and Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.

    Dzeko has proved formidable for his country with a goalscoring percentage of over 50% from appearances made, scoring 10 goals from 10 qualifying matches alone for Bosnia.

    His odds to be the side's top scorer at the World Cup are slightly shorter than team-mate Ibisevic however, who comes in at 4/1 to be Bosnia's top scorer with Bet365 after scoring eight goals in eight qualifying match showings.
