The stars of the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team do not want to play with Russia

Bosnia and Herzegovina accepted the offer to play a friendly match against Russia. The facts, however, are that it was done behind the backs of the national team leaders, who are against such events.

This was done against the FIFA ban. The international authorities suspended “Sborna” in connection with the brutal attack on Ukraine.

The meeting of these two nations is supposed to take place on November 19 in Saint Petersburg.
