Another flip in fortunes: Another Bosnian connection

The Bundesliga would have us believe that.
A Bosnian duo are striking mayhem.
Edin Dzeko of VFL Wolfsburg has scored 14 goals. He and Brazilian Grafite with 18 are benefiting from the playmaking ability of Dzeko’s countryman, Zvjezdan Misimović, the captain of the Bosnia & Herzegovina national team. Their little regarded team has raced from eighth to the top spot.
As VFL Wolfsburg star gains ascendancy, 1899 Hoffenheim’s is on the wane due to injuries to its duo of Bosnian standouts. An ACL injury in January cut short Vedad Ibisevic’s stellar season was carrying 1899 Hoffenheim to never before giddy heights with 17 goals. More recently, they lost Sejad Salihovic, their midfield general with a knee injury. Hoffenheim have struggled in recent games with just one win in nine games since January. They have fallen from first to the sixth position.
It is no wonder that the Bosnian national team has brought its attacking firepower to the World Cup qualifiers with 18 goals scored equaling Germany’s output. They are second to Spain in Group 5 and ahead of rivals Turkey.
