Five-star Bosnians set up Paris showdown

Zvjezdan Misimovic scored twice as Bosnia and Herzegovina set up a winner-takes-all Group D decider against France in Paris after coasting to a 5-0 win over section minnows Luxembourg.

Safet Susic's side started the night knowing a win would guarantee them at least a play-off berth and it was soon obvious the points were a mere formality against opponents with just one win in nine games.

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko brought the first save out of Luxembourg keeper Jonathan Joubert in the fourth minute and the tall front-runner also shot just wide of target from 25 yards after 10 minutes.

Two minutes, later Dzeko headed Bosnia into the lead from the centre of the penalty area when he connected with a fine cross by Mensur Mujdza from deep on the right wing.

With 15 minutes on the clock, Bosnia went further ahead when Misimovic fired his first of the night from a 20-yard free-kick, having been fouled by Tom Schnell. Five minutes later, Misimovic got his second from the penalty spot after Ante Bukvic fouled Vedad Ibisevic and was booked.

Dzeko continued to trouble the visiting defence with Joubert tipping an effort on the half-hour around the post, but 10 minutes from half-time Bosnia made it four when Miralem Pjanic fired home.

The Bosnians eased home in the second half with Haris Medunjanin bundling his side's fifth goal five minutes after the break. Medunjanin and Misimovic both had further chances, but the home side eased to victory with plenty to spare.
