Bosnia and Herzegovina manager Safet Susic said his side were "one of the world's best teams" on Thursday as they prepare for their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Slovakia in Zenica on Friday
Bosnia and Herzegovina will take a major step towards qualifying for a World Cup finals for the first time in their history over the next few days, if they can earn six points from their 'double-header' against Slovakia.
Safet Susic's side sit at the top of the Group G standings with sixteen points from six games, three points ahead of Greece and seven clear of Slovakia, who they entertain in Zenica on Friday, before the reverse fixture takes place in Zilina next Tuesday.
Bosnia and Herzegovina will be hot favourites to win both games and tighten their grip on the automatic qualification spot for Brazil 2014, especially with Edin Dzeko of Manchester City and Vedad Ibisevic of Stuttgart up front.
Between them the pair account for almost a quarter of the goals scored in the whole of Group G - 14.
