Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH’s) football team will play a friendly match with Spain at 20:45 in Las Palmas today. This will be a chance for the Dragons to make the 10th consecutive match without defeat, which would be a record in the history of the state team.The Dragons have nine match wins, with five consecutive wins and four draws (Bulgaria 1: 0, Senegal 0: 0, Montenegro 0: 0, South Korea 3: 1, Northern Ireland 2: 1, Austria 1: 0, Turkey 0: 0, Northern Ireland 2: 0, Austria 0: 0).Safet Susic also managed to tie nine victories from August 2012 to August 2013, and at that time, there were eight victories scored namely against Vales, Liechtenstein, Latvia, Lithuania, Algeria, Slovenia, Greece and Latvia and Greece.After the UEFA League match against Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina expects a friendly match with Spain on Sunday.Robert Prosinecki. BiH team head coach, will not be able to count on Miralem Pjanic and Ognjen Vranjec for this friendly match.Namely, Pjanic has problems with his leg, while Vranjes has an inflammation of the throat.Spain coach Luis Enrique will make changes to his side when they play Bosnia-Herzegovina in Las Palmas (Canary Islands) on Sunday as he looks to find a way back into winning ways. Sergio Busquets, Isco, Sergio Ramos, Marco Asensio, the recalled Jordi Alba and David de Gea all disappointed in Zagreb, with goalkeeper De Gea doing little to dispel the doubts over him in the World Cup finals.Ramos has had to withdraw from the squad with a groin injury and that absence coupled with that of Nacho Fernandez, who injured his knee before the Croatia game. Thus, Mario Hermoso is likely to start in defense, and Jony Otto and Gaya could also get their chances.However, after a winning start as a coach, Enrique has a problem with key players below their best and he needs to find long-term replacements for Busquets and Ramos, as well as an in-form striker.Although Sunday is a friendly match, it is important for Spain, with a win allowing Enrique to consider his solutions until March, while a third consecutive defeat would leave him with four months wondering how to get things right.
Share on: WhatsApp It is the first time a Mourinho team has lost three in a row since he was in charge at Porto in 2002.But Mourinho isn’t about to panic because he believes United’s woes are only partially self-inflicted and he expects a revival once their luck changes.“I reflect on three factors from the match, but only one of them I can improve,” he said.“The first factor depends on ourselves, it relates to our individual mistakes and collective mistakes as individual players and as a team. We have to improve something, it is in our hands.“The second factor is the referee and I can’t control their mistakes. The story of the game is the result and not the ridiculous situation of the first goal.“The third factor is luck, we didn’t have it. We were the best team when we lost. Heurelho Gomes made a phenomenal save from a Zlatan Ibrahimovic header.” Watford, United Kingdom | AFP | Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United’s lack of confidence has contributed to their dismal three-match losing streak.Mourinho’s side slumped to an embarrassing 3-1 defeat at Watford on Sunday to cap a miserable week that also included losses against Manchester City and Feyenoord.After winning the first three games of the Mourinho era, United are stuck in a rut and looked painfully short of inspiration in their first defeat against Watford for 30 years.It was a tepid display that recalled the worst moments of Louis van Gaal’s reign and Mourinho believes his players are suffering from a lack of belief that takes an extra toll whenever an important moment goes against them.“We started the season very well and had good results. I feel the first moment we had a defeat, a difficult situation, some of the boys are having a bit of difficulty coping with the negativity,” Mourinho said.“You see Ashley Young, his mentality the happiness and confidence he brought to the game is something more players need to have.”
