Bosnia beaten in classic by Belgium, big boost to home nations

YANNICK CARRASCO DID Ireland a big favour as Belgium came from 2-1 down to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-3 in their penultimate World Cup qualifier.

The Azzurri will attempt to return to winning ways in Albania today following Friday's poor 1-1 draw against Macedonia in Turin.

Cyprus, on 10 points, could have stayed in contention but an bad mistake by Konstantinos Laifis six minutes later let Greece back into the game. "It's my most important challenge".

The winners of the nine European groups qualify directly for Russian Federation next year and the best eight of the nine runners-up play off for four more places. For two rounds to the finish of qualification in the national team of Greece 13 points, with the goal difference 11-5 and third in the table, the gap from the running second Bosnia is 1 point.

Italy have 14 points, not including the six they won against bottom team Liechtenstein which are discarded when calculating the best runners-up.

Nine minutes later, Jan Vertonghen used a great mistake made by the BiH team to put the visitors in lead again.

But Carrasco scored just a minute later to hand Belgium all three points.

The Tottenham defender won his 96 cap for the Red Devils in Sarajevo, drawing level with legendary attacking midfielder Jan Ceulemans, who set the current cap record way back in 1991.

Fellaini had to be substituted in the 29th minute of the Group H clash.

United manager Jose Mourinho had voiced concerns over how the global break could stall his side's form ahead of Saturday's big clash against Liverpool.
