The women’s U-17 national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina today played tie 1:1 with Serbia in a friendly match played in Zenica.
There weren’t many opportunities to score in the first half. Both teams had several attempts from distance, which were not a serious threat to goalkeepers Anamarija Prljević and Jefimija Škandro.
The beginning of the second period of the game brought more offensive play to the visitors. First, Nina Matejić missed a great opportunity, and in the 55th minute, Mina Čavić did her best in the penalty area of the BH team and scored for 0:1.
Five minutes later, the chosen ones of Ilija Lucić made a tie. After a corner kick from the left side, the ball went to Ajla Balić who sent the ball with a low kick into the net from the five-meter area.
By the end of the match there were no more opportunities.
Head coach Ilija Lucić said after the match:
“I congratulate both teams on fair and correct game. We fixed some things compared to the first match. We played well against a quality opponent. I wish the Serbian team once again good luck in the elite qualifying round of European Championship.”
