Bosnia-Herzegovina Vs. Portugal Live, Euro 2012 Qualifying Playoffs: Bosnia's Turn To Waste Chances

Bosnia vs. Portugal in Sarejevo has gotten fairly good in the second half, mostly because the midfield has opened up. That means that both sides are on the attack frequently, and that's making for an exciting game. The fact that said attacks are breaking down - mostly in silly fashion - isn't really taking away from that, because it means that there's just the chance for the other team to counter.

Despite a couple of fantastic chances for Portugal, it's Bosnia who are in the ascendancy at the moment after making a pair of substitutions: Darko Maletic and Vedad Ibisevic have come on for Haris Medunjanin and Sejad Salihovic respectively. But despite their strong play, they're just not getting things done - Miralem Pjanic completely wastes a great chance to break down the right by passing straight to a defender, Edin Dzeko opts to shoot from 40 yards rather than play the obvious pass, and then Ibisevic contrived to fall over his own feet and miss from eight yards when the Portugal defence decided not to do anything at all about a cross. It's a weird, weird game right now, but it's also still 0-0.
