Last night the Slovak football team were beaten 3-2 at home by a determined Bosnia&Herzegovina team in a friendly match. This takes Slovakia’s balance for the year to four wins, four draws and five losses, with 16 goals for and 17 against.
Slovakia took the lead just three minutes from the whistle when Vladimir Weiss fired to the right of the field, kicking a low cross which Filip Sebo successfully converted to make his sixth goal in just ten international matches.
The visitors soon drew even though, when in the 27th minute Slovakia failed to clear a Bosnian corner, which Harris Medunjanin then put into the goal.
The game continued with fast and technical play on both sides through to half-time. The resumption of Slovakia saw Napoli star Marek Hamsik take the field, who this week had a biography on him christened by Juventus striker Pavel Nedved.
It was not long before Miralem Pjanic put his team in the lead just five minutes into the second half, with a ball in the top of the net that the Slovak goalkeeper could do nothing about.
The away team then advanced their lead with a magnificent shot by Edin Dzeko (their best player for sure).
The excitement continued when Peter Gracjiar was awarded a penalty, which was converted to make it 2-3.
The Slovaks lived in hope of a draw right to the final seconds, but Miroslav Karhan wasted a golden opportunity.
The referee’s whistle ended the match 2-3, but good quality and entertaining football was enjoyed by the crowd.
