Ireland v Bosnia and Herzegovina Football Results

Bosnia and Herzegovina is an independent country on the Balkan peninsula in the south east of Europe. The country is one of the new football nations that emerged with the dissolution of the former Yugoslavia during the early 1990's.

Bosnia and Herzegovina did not play their first match as an independent footballing nation until November 1995. They lost 2-0 away to Albania in a friendly match played in Tirana. It was an inauspicious beginning - and not just because of the result. The team bought their jerseys for the match in a Zagreb sports shop just a matter of hours before kick-off.

After a slow beginning Bosnia and Herzegovina made relatively rapid progress by qualifying for the World Cup finals in Brazil in 2014. In their 2014 qualifying campaign they qualified in some style winning every match bar one. This was an impressive achievement by the poorest country in Europe (at the time) that had a population of under four million, very poor infrastructure, and a very poor domestic soccer league.

Ireland and Bosnia & Herzegovina met for the first time in an international match in a friendly prior to Ireland's participation in the Euro 2012 finals. The Irish football manager at the time was Giovanni Trapattoni and Ireland won 1-0 thanks to a second-half Shane Long strike.

The first competitive meetings of the two teams was in a two-match play-off to determine who would qualify for the Euro 2016 finals in Paris. The matches were played in November 2015 with Ireland playing the second leg at home in the Aviva stadium. The Irish won by a 3-1 aggregate scoreline.
