After the draw held at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, the U-19 women’s team of Bosnia and Herzegovina have learned the names of its opponents in the elite qualifying round for EURO 2020.
The BH U-19 women’s team is placed in Group 5 with France, Portugal and Italy.
The tournament will be held in Portugal from 7th to 13th April 2020.
Head coach Dragan Jevtić says about the group:
“Given that we qualified for the elite round, we could not expect easy opponents at all. All teams at this stage of the competition have quality. The group is tough, but also attractive. I am pleased with the draw, because these are opponents we can play against. These girls have not yet said the last word in these qualifications and I believe in them. We will do our best to achieve the best possible result and represent our country in the best way. We look forward to meeting attractive opponents.”
Jevtić also commented on the qualifying group for next season, when the BH team will play against Norway, Poland and the Faroe Islands:
“We also got quality opponents here, but we have plenty of time until October to prepare well. In the next qualifying cycle, we will also have a group of players who are already competing for the female junior team. I think we can repeat this season’s success and qualify for the elite round.”
