Bazdarevic spoke to the media about his squad selection, potential injuries, as well as the strength of the Greek national team side. Amongst his comments were the following:
“We're not sure if several players will be able to play. Milicevic will undergo medical exams today, Djuric is definitely out, while Pavlovic and Vrsajevic also had injuries. We hope they will be ready for the game. We also have players who are in top form, while others had very little game time, and it's important that we work with them during the preparation period in order to come out with optimal performance for the match with Greece.”
They (Greece) were tough, responsible and disciplined against the Belgians, and they could have done more besides a draw. I'm sure they will play like that against us in Zenica, and it would best for us if we don't rush and remain organized. I think we possess the quality to do it, and with our fans' support we'll play the game the right way. There's no room for improvisations; we have to approach this match very seriously."
