Sarajevo (AFP) – Bosnia and Herzegovina captain Edin Dzeko became the first player from his country to reach 100 international caps in their opening Euro 2020 qualifier against Armenia on Saturday.
A brief ceremony was held before the game in Sarajevo to honour the striker, who is also his country’s record scorer with 55 goals.
The 33-year-old was presented with a shirt bearing the number ‘100’, and a bouquet of flowers.
“It’s definitely a special match for me, because it’s the 100th, and more so at my stadium, where I started my career,” said Dzeko, whose first club was Bosnian outfit Zaljeznicar.
He made his Bosnia debut on June 2, 2007.
