Our prediction for this match:
Spain will be aiming to make amends for a heart-breaking 3-2 loss to England when they host Bosnia and Herzegovina at their Estadio de Gran Canaria on Sunday evening. La Roja have been scoring goals for fun in the UEFA Nations League, but they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the defeat to the Three Lions. Luis Enrique’s men are eager to return to winning ways, therefore, we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s football match. The Balkan Dragons, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in all competitions, but preventing Spain superstars from scoring in Las Palmas is easier said than done. As always, a man to watch in the away side will be Roma attacker Edin Dzeko, whilst Bosnia defenders should have Marco Asensio at bay.
Highlighted Player (Iker Casillas):
Iker Casillas is a product of Real Madrid’s youth school. He made 510 appearances for the capital club at senior level and many people expected that he would retire as a Real Madrid player. The 185-cm-tall goalkeeper, though, moved to Porto on 11 July, 2015 after losing his place in the starting line-up at Real Madrid. Casillas made 32 league appearances for Porto in the 2015/2016 campaign and he managed to keep 13 clean sheets in the process.
During his spell with Real Madrid the left-handed shoot-stopper won five La Liga titles and three Champions League trophies and it is well known that he made good results with Spain national team as well. Casillas helped Spain win two European Championship trophies (2008, 2012) and he was part of the team that clinched the 2010 FIFA World Cup trophy.
Spain defeated Netherlands 1-0 in the 2010 World Cup final in South Africa, with Iker Casillas impressing in the title game. He made a crucial save when Arjen Robben passed all Spain defenders with the score at 0-0.
Highlighted Team (Bosnia & Herzegovina):
Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team have been competiting on the international stage since the country declared independence in 1992. The former Yugoslavian republic did well to book their place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, but the Balkan Dragons failed to impress at the showpiece tournament.
Bosnia were beaten by the likes of Argentina and Nigeria in the group stages of the competition, but they gave fans some cheer on June 25, 2014, with the team beating Iran 3-1 in their final group game. The Dragons welcome their rivals at Bilino Polje in Zenica and the capacity of the venue is 15.600. Bosnia play their home games in blue shirts and blue shorts, whilst the colour of their away kits is white.
Roma attacker Edin Dzeko, who used to play for the likes of Wolfsburg and Manchester City, is undisputedly the team’s most notable footballer. Serie A ace Miralem Pjanic is yet another player to mention as he has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world football.
