The 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship comprises a qualifying group stage and play-off round to determine which seven teams join hosts Israel in the final tournament.
Qualifying group stage
Teams are split into ten groups – two of six teams and eight of five – and play each other on a home and away basis. The ten group winners and four runners-up with the best record against the teams first, third, fourth and fifth in their sections advance to the play-offs.
Play-off matches are played according to the knockout system, with each team playing each opponent home and away. The team which scores the greater aggregate of goals qualifies for the next round, with away goals, extra time and then penalties used to determine the winner in the event of a draw.
The final tournament comprises the seven play-off winners and Israel, who qualify automatically as hosts. The eight teams are split into two groups of four. Each team plays each other once in their group with the winners and runners-up advancing to the semi-finals where the winner of Group A plays the Group B runner-up and vice-versa. The winners advance to the final.
Further details, including the criteria for separating teams that finish level on points in a group, can be found in the official competition regulations.
Bosnia and Herzegovina are up to second place in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 1 after Edin Višća scored the only goal against Greece.
The İstanbul BB SK player punished the hosts' failure to clear their lines midway through the second half, running on to a neat pass from Miroslav Stevanović and unleashing a powerful left-footed drive from inside the penalty area that beat goalkeeper Kostas Lambrou.
Lambrou was called into action inside the opening three minutes to save a shot from Nemanja Bilbija, who then had another effort kept out by the Greece goalkeeper. Sandwiching those attempts was a Tassos Lagos header which pressed Semir Bukvić into service at the other end.
Both goalkeepers, from Giannis Fetfatzidis and Višća respectively, were tested again before the end of a lively half, while after the break Višća struck a post. From the rebound the woodwork was rattled again, this time by Bilbija.
Višća then cleared the crossbar but was rewarded for his perseverance after 67 minutes. Greece, beaten 5-4 at home by Germany on Friday, were unable to respond, substitute Nikos Karelis coming closest to an equaliser in added time when he hit Bukvić's left-hand upright.
