Susic: Bosnia World Cup Qualification No 'Accident'

MOST COMMENTED

Bosnia-Herzegovina earned some instant credibility and momentum for its World Cup charge by beating Mexico, 1-0, at Soldier Field in Chicago on Tuesday night. The Balkan nation, which is making its World Cup debut, was coming off of a 2-1 win against Ivory Coast, while Mexico ended an eight-game unbeaten run with the loss, El Tri’s first under coach Miguel Herrera. Mexico is now 3-1-1 on its pre-World Cup U.S. tour; its final friendly is Friday against Portugal in Foxborough, Mass.

After the game, Bosnian coach Safet Susic said his team would not be satisfied with a first-round exit. “We definitely want to show the world that we're not there by accident,” he said. “We have very, very good players and as most of the teams participating in the World Cup we have ambitions to get past the first round."

Mexico veteran Rafael Marquez noted: "It was not the best game for Mexico but we need this need this to continue (and) have a good performance in the next game.” Teammate Javier Hernandez, who missed several chances, added:  “There were some shots that [Bosnia keeper Asmir] Begovic saved really well. That's part of football, thankfully this was not the World Cup."
