National football team of Bosnia and Herzegovina played out a tame goalless draw with Senegal in the French city of Le Havre on Tuesday. 

Robert Prosinecki’s team were on the front foot for most of the game, with winger Edin Visca missing a number of chances and had a goal disallowed for offside.

Bosnia’s star striker Edin Dzeko and Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac also went close as Senegal keeper Abdoulaye Diallo made several fine saves.

Bursaspor striker Moussa Sow missed a couple of chances at the other end.

This was African nation’s second successive draw after they were held 1-1 by Uzbekistan last week. Senegal were drawn in Group H with Poland, Colombia and Japan at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, which is set to commence on June 14.

Bosnia and Herzegovina has so far played four games under the new coach Robert Prosinecki - against United States (0-0), Mexico (0-1), Bulgaria (1-0) and Senegal. They are scheduled to play against Montenegro at the Bilino Polje Stadium in Zenica on May 28.

Tuesday evening’s game, however, was the last one in Bosnia’s shirt for midfielder Haris Medunjanin, who has decided to retire from international football.
