Let's talk about Dzeko
Eventually we will see Dzeko in a national teams tournament. Medias often write about the players who will not participate at the World Cup (Ibrahimovic, Tevez, Llorente at the top of the lists) but they do forget to give the right importance to those who will participate for the first time in a major tournament for national teams. Dzeko is one of those which we were all waiting to see. And he started in the best way scoring two goals in the friendly match with Cote d'Ivoire.
Bosnia 1st participation
Bosnia-Herzegovina arrived first in the Group G of the World Cup qualification stage in Europe: they won 8, drew 1 and lost 1 scoring 30 goals and conceding only 6. Dzeko scored 10 and was the second best scorer of all groups behind Van Persie followed by his team mate Vedad Ibisevic with 8 goals. True that they met Lichtenstein among other teams, but they also scored all important goals in their match with Greece.
Mexico won both friendlies
Good preparation also for Mexico: 3-0 win over Israel in Mexico City and 3-1 win over Ecuador. The match with Ecuador has seen the injury of Montes who will have to miss the World Cup. Also Rafael Marquez has to recover from an injury and he will be out for this friendly. After testing goalkeeper Corona with Israel and then goalkeeper Ochoa with Ecuador it is now Talavera to be in the starting line-up. In the probable starting elevens given by the Mexican online medias I dont see Javier Hernandez, Pulido and Giovanni dos Santos.
Hoping that Dzeko, Pjanic and Ibisevic will all play this friendly game in Chicago I take my bet on Bosnia with Asian Handicap.
Mexico: Talavera; Aguilar, Salcido, Rodriguez, Moreno; Layún, Pena, Herrera, Guardado; Brizuela, Peralta. Coach: Herrera
Bosnia: Begovic, Spahic, Mujdza, Bicakcic, Kolasinac; Lulic, Salihovic, Pjanic, Hajrovic; Ibisevic, Dzeko. Coach: Susic
Out: Rafael Marquez (Mexico)
