Bosnia and Herzegovina recovered from an early setback to continue their fine start in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group G, beating Latvia 4-1 in Zenica.

Kaspars Gorkšs found the target in the fifth minute for the visitors, steering Deniss Ivanovs flick into the net from close range following an Oļegs Laizāns corner, but the home side regrouped quickly, Zvjezdan Misimović replying from the penalty spot on 12 minutes after Edin Džeko was brought down in the area. Džeko was denied by Latvia goalkeeper Andrijs Vaņins as half-time approached, but made amends briskly, setting up Miralem Pjanić for Bosnia and Herzegovina's second.
