Edin Džeko, new Bosnia and Herzegovina captain:

My goal as our new captain is to take the team through qualification and secure a place at the European Championship. Of course, my role is different as captain. I believe I can be a good captain. There are still some older players in the team and I believe they will support me and that together we will achieve the best possible result.

'Operation France 2016' is the mission Bosnia and Herzegovina are taking up as they kick off UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying against Cyprus, fresh from a 3-0 friendly win against Liechtenstein. "I never know who will start a match until three days before the game," coach Safet Sušić said of the opening Group B challenge. "I believe that I'll only have this team two hours before the match. Maybe the players will know whether they are playing based on what they do on the field. This team has 30 years' less experience than the one that played at the World Cup in Brazil. These players are progressing and we have a young but mature and strong team."
