Bosnia-Herzegovina vs. Greece, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

Jonathan Daniel

Bosnia-Herzegovina and Greece meet in Zenica with first place in Group G on the line.

Just reading that a match between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece is scheduled is probably not something that gets the blood pressure up or gets marked on your calender as a must-watch game. Don't let your preconceptions fool you though, this match matters and features the first and second place team in Group G.

Sure Group G is probably weakest group in UEFA qualifying but that doesn't matter. The winner still gets a spot in the World Cup and the runner-up gets a playoff game, so it matters.

Bosnia and Herzegovina have never reached a major international tournament since they became an independent nation and they sit in first place with a serious shot of doing just that. There's still a lot of work to do but no losses and ten points from their first four games is a great start.

Greece will be hoping to take over first place in the group with a win but they'll have to do it without Nikos Spyropoulos and Kyriakos Papadopoulos who are both injured. Uncapped 22-year old goalkeeper Juri Lodigin earned a surprise call-up as well for the Greeks.

Match Date/Time: 8:45 p.m. local, 3:45 p.m. ET

Venue: Bilino Polje, Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Online: ESPN3 (U.S.)
