Appearing in their first International tournament, Bosnia and Herzegovina go into the 2014 World Cup with a good chance of reaching the Second Round - after being drawn into Group F.
While they may be forced to conceded the Group Winners spot to Argentina, Bosnia and Herzegovina should have no problems seeing off Nigeria and Iran, to join the South Americans in qualifying out of the group.
HOW BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA GOT TO THE 2014 WORLD CUP
Starting with an 8-1 demolition of Liechtenstein, Bosnia and Herzegovina delivered a real statement of intent in UEFA Qualifying Group G and followed it up by finishing in top spot ahead of Greece.
With identical records of eight wins and a draw from their 10 games, Bosnia and Herzegovina prevailed with a far superior goal difference - giving them the automatic qualification spot, to ensure they avoided a third-successive UEFA Playoff appearance.
BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA MANAGER AND TRACK RECORD
After being named as Bosnia and Herzegovina manager in 2009, Safet Susic narrowly missed out on guiding them to a first major International tournament twice - after losing to Portugal in the UEFA Playoffs for both the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.
However, it was to be third time lucky for the 59-year-old and his country - as they automatically qualified for Brazil, to avoid any further disappointment in the Playoffs.
BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA KEY PLAYER
With 10 goals in 2014 World Cup Qualifying, Edin Dzeko will need to continue in that vein once the tournament starts if Bosnia and Herzegovina are to give a good account of themselves in Brazil.
Already his country's leading goal scorer with 33 goals in just 58 appearances, much will be expected of the forward from his fellow countrymen - as they venture into uncharted territory this summer.
And the 28-year-old Manchester City forward will need to ensure he can maintain his impressive International goalscoring record at the 2014 World Cup, in order to inspire Bosnia and Herzegovina to progress to the knockout stages.
BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA 2014 WORLD CUP BETTING TIP
Bosnia and Herzegovina shouldn't have any real trouble finishing ahead of Nigeria and Iran to qualify out of the group and reach the Second Round of the 2014 World Cup.
However, with a major tournament baptism of fire awaiting them - facing Argentina in their opening game at the Maracana - expect Bosnia and Herzegovina to finish as runners-up in Group F.
