Bosnia and Herzegovina risks a serious penalty from UEFA if it plays the already arranged friendly match with Russia on November 19 in St. Petersburg, a day before the start of the World Cup in Qatar, Avaz reported, citing sources at the headquarters in Nyon.
As “Avaz” reported, citing UEFA sources, it is possible that the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina will be excluded from all UEFA programs, financial assistance such as the “forward program”, development programs such as the “hat trick”.
“Some things you shouldn’t play with, it’s like playing with fire. UEFA initially responded that friendly matches were not within its competence, but… Then came the sanctions introduced by the EU, the USA, which means that they also have an impact on the sporting part, regardless of whether they are political, so this match will impose a package of sanctions against the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is possible that there will be a suspension, mostly in the financial part, although it is not excluded that the federation will be removed from all competitions under the auspices of UEFA. Exclusion from all UEFA financial programs is possible. The situation is simple, UEFA says play, but then we’ll see what happens,” the UEFA source told Avaz.
