Prospects: Expect the adventurous Bosnians to attract plenty of support from neutrals. Their tally of 30 goals was the fourth highest in European qualifying, while no strike duo can match the total of 18 goals shared by Edin Dzeko and Vedad Ibisevic (albeit in a fairly weak group).
However, defensive weaknesses ensure goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is kept busy. Reaching the last 16 would be a success.They managed to qualify but beaten in the play-offs by Portugal in their previous two qualifying campaigns, the Bosnians were determined to top their group this time round. They edged out Greece on goal difference following a final-game win in Lithuania.
Coach: Voted the best player in Paris Saint-Germain's history, Safet Susic represented Yugoslavia at the 1982 and 1990 World Cups. He says of his cavalier approach: "We know that we expose ourselves too much and that there is a huge risk in the way we play - but that is the price we are willing to pay. In the end, we play to score more goals than the opposition, and it has paid off so far." Bosnia is 21st in world ranking. Key Players: Playmaker Miralem Pjanic, 23, has been in outstanding form for Roma this season. His family fled Bosnia's civil war when he was a baby, settling in Luxembourg, who he played for at youth level before switching allegiance. He burst into tears after World Cup qualification was achieved.
Edin Dzeko (Manchester City): A very power full striker who helped Bosnia to qualify for the world cup finals by scoring 13 goals during the qualifying stage. Download Free Guide FIFA World Cup 2014
