GOOD EVENING FROM SARAJEVO
Welcome to our live coverage of the World Cup qualifying match between Bosnia & Herzegovina and France at the Grbavica Stadium.
The two nations are set to lock horns in their second round of qualifiers on Group D where they have also drawn Finland, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
France are getting ready for the delayed Euro 2020 competition where they are set for the “group of death” against Germany, Portugal and Hungary but will have to put all of that aside tonight when they take on Bosnia.
Tricolores manager Didier Deschamps will be without Manchester United star Anthony Martial, who was forced off the pitch during Sunday’s win at Kazakhstan with a knee injury.
United star midfielder Paul Pogba may also not be completely match fit as he recently overcame a hamstring problem and played for an hour in the weekend.
Chelsea talisman N’Golo Kante is also out with a muscle injury and thus Juventus ace Adrien Rabiot is likely to team up with Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele in midfield.
Bosnia caretaker boss Slaven Musa, who fills in for manager Ivaylo Petev after he tested positive for coronavirus, will be missing Ermedin Demirovic, Josip Corluka and Edin Visca as they have all been forced to withdraw from the squad over the international break.
But Amer Gojak, Rade Krunic, Gojko Cimirot and Eldar Civic should all return to Musa’s starting line-up
