Portugal vs. Bosnia and Herzegovina (World Cup Playoffs)


Football enthusiasts will surely want to watch the 2010 World Cup qualifying match between Portugal and Bosnia and Herzegovina happening live at Estadio da Luz in Lisbon.

The Seleccao were so close to missing out on qualification for World Cup 2010 but ultimately made it into the play-offs at the expense of Sweden.

Portugal will be without its most precious asset— Cristiano Ronaldo—who will miss out due to injury. However, it has enough talented wingers, such as Simao and Nani, to cope with Ronaldo’s absence.

Bosnia And Herzegovina, on the other hand, has one of Europe’s best young players, led by strikers Edin Dzeko and Vedad Ibisevic.

Prediction: It’s Portugal, and CR9 must be in South Africa!

UPDATE: The Seleccao dominated against Bosnia, but ended up just taking a one goal lead in their World Cup play-off first leg encounter. Porto defender Bruno Alves scored the all important winner for Portugal in the 32nd minute.
