Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Blaz Sliskovic has added seven home-based players to the eleven from abroad who had earlier been called up for the forthcoming UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying ties against Denmark and Luxembourg.
NK Željezničar's Kenan Hasagic, Bulend Biščevic and Haris Alihodžic have been called up as well as Siniša Mulina from FK Leotar and Mirko Hrgovic of NK Široki Brijeg.
Sliškovic has also called up two Under-21 internationals. "Džemal Berberovic and Vladan Grujic will also join the preparations and, in agreement with U-21 coach Ibrahim Zukanovic we will decide to which selection they could be more useful at this point," Sliškovic said. "There is still a possibility that I [could] bring in some other players during preparations, but only from domestic clubs."
Earlier, Croatian-based duo Almir Turkovic of HNK Hajduk Split and Edin Mujcin of NK Dinamo Zagreb were included in the squad, along with Branimir Baljic, who plays in Serbia and Montenegro for FK Partizan. Mirsad Hibic has also been named, although he will miss the Luxembourg game through suspension.
Bosnia-Herzegovina are due to entertain Group 2 rivals Luxembourg on 29 March before playing Denmark in Copenhagen four days later. Sliskovic’s side are second from bottom of Group 2 having lost their opening games against Norway and Romania without scoring a goal.
