Zlatan Muslimovic scored twice in the second half Wednesday to help
Bosnia beat Armenia 4-1 in a World Cup qualifier.

Bosnia took the lead in the 31st minute after Armenia goalkeeper
Roman Berezovski only managed to punch away a corner straight at
striker Elvir Spahic, who fired in a volley.

The host controlled play throughout the first half and made it 2-0
in the 38th when Samir Muratovic’s pass from the right side reached
Edin Dzeko, who headed into the net from close range.

The Bosnians kept attacking after the break, and Muslimovic put the
game away in the 56th, taking a pass from Zvjezdan Misimovic and
dribbling through the Armenian defense before sending a powerful shot
past Berezovski.

Armenia pulled one back in the 85th when Vahagn Minasyan volleyed a
shot past Bosnia goalkeeper Goran Brasnic.

But Muslimovic made sure the visitors couldn’t rally, heading in his
second goal in the 89th after taking a pass from Admir Vladavic.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
