As for Bosnia-Herzegovina, which also missed the World Cup, the bulk of its talent–Edin Dzeko, Miralem Pjanic, Vedad Ibisevic and Asmir Begovic among them–has remained overseas given that the match falls outside of a FIFA international fixture window.
The first moment of danger came from Sapong, who pounced on a poor back pass as a result of that lack of cohesion and forced a save from Qarabag goalkeeper Ibrahim Sehic in the seventh minute.
