Prior to the team's trip to Andorra, members of the country's presidency, Dragan Čović and Bakir Izetbegović, hosted a reception for members of the Bosnia and Herzegovina staff and squad. The politicians wished the team luck while president of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Football Federation (NFSBiH) Elvedin Begić presented the leaders with team shirts signed by all the players.
Bosnia and Herzegovina have departed Sarajevo airport bound for Barcelona, from where they will take a bus to Andorra ahead of Saturday's qualifier. Coach Mehmed Baždarević said: "It is extremely important that everybody's ready and that they have worked well. Now we are up for what is the most important, hardest and most beautiful thing.
"Our opponents are what they are. We have to avoid traps. There are a few ideas who will be among the starting Xi, but at this moment that is what matters least. I am satisfied with the players' behaviour and engagement. On Saturday we just have to repeat what we have been doing for the past week."
