Edin Džeko struck twice as Bosnia and Herzegovina opened up a three-point cushion at the top of Group G courtesy of an impressive victory against second-placed Greece. 

The atmosphere inside Bilino Polje was simmering and it boiled over when Džeko opened the scoring after 29 minutes. Vedad Ibišević swiftly made it two – after Zvjezdan Misimović had missed from the spot – before Džeko added a third. The only blot on an otherwise perfect night for the hosts came when Fanis Gekas scored a consolation in added time.
