Bosnia will play a friendly against Russia that will infuriate their own players.

Star players Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko are not happy with the decision of the Bosnian Football Association to play a friendly against Russia. The couple finds it incomprehensible that the union is responding to the Russians’ request.

The two countries will meet on November 19, a day before the start of the World Cup in Qatar. Since the war in Ukraine, no national team has played against the Russians, who were not allowed to participate in the world final tournament. Bosnia and Herzegovina did not participate.

Speaking to the Bosnian press, Pjanic said: “The management of the football association called me and asked what I thought of the exhibition game.” “I have expressed my opinion. I just think it’s a really bad decision. I have nothing to say about it.”

Pjanic, 32, did not say if he was available for an exhibition game. The 107-time international striker made a lucrative transfer from FC Barcelona to Sharjah SC from the United Arab Emirates this week.

“I am against playing this game,” said captain Dzeko, who already seemed to have more or less withdrawn from the game. “I am always and only for peace. We should not play this duel while innocent people are suffering.”

Honorary President of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Koloskov welcomes the “big breakthrough”. For the game on November 19, Russia will face Kyrgyzstan on September 24.
