Bosnia. And Herzegovina too. What are they like?

The Bosnia game will sell out but I'm slightly surprised that a Saturday competitive game isn't proving more popular.  A sign that the public aren't really buying into the Nations Cup games being  proper competitive games. 

Hopefully this isn't reflected in the atmosphere.

I think they need to be very careful with the prices they are charging, they have pretty much hit the limit now in terms of what people are prepared to pay for games.

Bizarrely the hospitality prices In PJ lounge are more than what they charged for the World Cup play off.

Quite why they think a glorified friendly against Bosnia is more attractive beats me. Not surprisingly the lounge is far from sold out.

Quite an interesting squad. Good to see that they're without 2 of their highest profile players:

Asmir Begovic - 61 caps, usual 1st choice keeper

Sead Kolasinac - Arsenal defender

Sorry if this has already been discussed but is our game next Saturday a competitive game? If so we need to cap BPF and Lewis. 

I think both of them should start on merit, which is a much better reason to cap them

Not having a go at you specifically mate, but I keep seeing this "glorified friendly" term bandied about.  This is a legitimate competition and a route to qualify in to Euro 2020.  It isn't a glorified friendly.

Have to agree, they've split up the euro qualifiers into 2 different set of qualifiers in an extremely clunky and complicated way but these are by no means friendlies

Given that the rankings for the euro qualification draw will be based on nations league performance, a good performance in these games could possibly give us a more favourable group as well.

It's being called a glorified friendly competition not least because realistically most teams in Leagues A and B will qualify automatically. And so those who dont will likely make the play offs even if they stiff in this Autumn's games
