Bosnia and Herzegovina will make their major tournament debut next summer in Brazil after Vedad Ibišević's second-half goal overcame Lithuania and took them to the FIFA World Cup.

Lithuania had goalkeeper Giedrius Arlauskis in superb form for more than an hour, denying several Miralem Pjanić's free-kicks, but eventually the guests found what they came for as Edin Džeko set up Ibišević for a tap-in on 68 minutes. Bosnia and Herzegovina therefore win Group G ahead of Greece on goal difference – and avoid a play-off having lost at that stage four years ago to Portugal and again in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying.
