South Korea vs Bosnia and Herzegovina Today’s Soccer Prediction
On Monday, May 28, also at home, the South Koreans beat Honduras, another team that did not get a place in the World Cup in Russia, 2-0.

In the confrontation before the Hondurans, the South Koreans only managed to reach the goals in the second half and did not make a great performance.

The right shots were 3-2.

Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina did not make a good start in the European qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. It showed evolution in the end but not enough. With 17 points (five wins, two draws and three defeats), he finished third in Group H behind Belgium (28) and Greece (19).
Since then, he has held five friendly matches in preparation for the Euro 2018 qualifiers. He won one (Bulgaria), lost one (Mexico) and drew three (Montenegro, Senegal and United States).
This Friday’s match and the friendly against Montenegro in the sequence will serve as a kind of farewell tour for three athletes with a long history in the national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Misimovic, Ibisevic and Spahic will no longer serve the selection.
