Bosnia won’t target Messi

Bosnia and Herzegovina head coach Safet Susic says that his side will not look to man-mark Argentina ace Lionel Messi.

The Dragons will face Argentina in their opening World Cup encounter on Sunday, and keeping Messi quiet is one of the many tough tasks that they face.

While well aware of the threat that Messi poses, Susic insists that his troops will not resort to dedicating one man to constantly mark the Barcelona star.

“We never put a player on another … We have (Muhamed) Besic but putting him only on Messi wouldn’t be very good,” commented Susic.

The South-Eastern European nation completed their World Cup warm-up fixtures with a 5-1 victory over a youth team from Brazilian club outfit Santos.
