Bosnia played well during the fixture, but were left to rue two officiating errors which cost their side victory as Edin Dzeko had a goal wrongly ruled offside and then Emmanuel Emenike appeared to foul Emir Spahic in the build up to Nigeria’s goal.
“The match unfolded exactly the way I imagined.” Susic told FIFA.com in the post match press conference.
“It was an open game, two teams wishing to win, lots of chances at either end. We had a lot of chances and didn’t convert any. They had one and scored that goal. I can only congratulate them.
We knew they would be tough but they surprised us with their speed, their movement. They played attacking football, they really wanted to win. Now they are in second place in the group with great chances to progress.”
Bosnia now play Iran in their final match of Group F on Wednesday 25th June knowing that they cannot qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament.
