Bosnia ready for Denmark decider

Blaz Sliškovic said his Bosnia-Herzegovina side were "ready to secure a place in Portugal" against Denmark.

Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Blaz Sliškovic has named his 18-man squad for next weekend's decisive UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifier against Denmark.

Win or bust
For Bosnia, victory in the home match in Sarajevo's Koševo stadium on Saturday would earn them a direct ticket to Portugal as winners of Group 2. Bosnia have never competed in a major finals before and must win to achieve this as they presently sit third in the section two points behind both Denmark and Romania.

'Ready to beat Denmark'
Galatasaray SK forward Elvir Baljic returns to the squad after missing the matches against Norway and Luxembourg due to injury. Sliškovic said: "We are ready to secure a place in Portugal. At the start of the qualifiers we could not have dreamed about coming this far. Our young team have gained a lot of experience in these qualifiers and we've had our reward. We also had a bit of luck, but now we are ready to beat Denmark."

Bosnia-Herzegovina squad
Tolja, Hibic, Bajramovic, Konjić, Spahić, Papac, Musić, Barbarez, Hrgović, Bolic, Baljic, Salihamidžić, Hasagic, Biščević, Alihodžić, Krunić, Grujić, Berberovic.
