Inter striker Edin Dzeko feels that the defeat of his Bosnian national team by Georgia yesterday evening underlines how unpredictable modern football.
Speaking in a press conference, as reported by FCInterNews, the 36-year-old emphasized how the shock result in an international friendly was further evidence that the stronger side on paper is never guaranteed a win.
Dzeko is the captain, top scorer, and top appearance-maker for Bosnia and Herzgovina, having appeared in a World Cup with his country and also been the highest-profile player from the national team in European club football during this generation.
He will have hoped to have led the team to a victory against Georgia in their first friendly of the international break, but neither he nor any of his teammates managed to get on the scoresheet.
As a result, the unfancied Georgia team managed to capitalize, and came out winners against Dzeko and his teammates.
“What can I say?” he said. “They scored against us with the only real chance they created, but nobody can be underestimated in today’s football.”
He went on that “We didn’t risk anything, that’s not how football is played. I think we did much better in the first half, then they had two counter-attacks. We had enough chances to score, but unfortunately we didn’t.”
