Setback for Bosnia - Norway lose - Vestergaard scores

EURO 2016 qualifying didn't start as hoped for TSG stars Tarik Elyounoussi, Ermin Bicakcic and Sejad Salihovic, but Jannik Vestergaard was able to celebrate an easy victory with Denmark's U21s.

Bosnia-Herzegovina had a difficult start to their European Championship qualifying campaign. Safet Susic's World Cup participants lost 2-1 to Cyprus in Zenica.

TSG defender Ermin Bicakcic was in the starting XI. Sejad Salihovic was an unused substitute. It was a frustrating night for the Bosnians, who found themselves behind, despite taking an early lead through Vedad Ibisevic. They had a great chance to equalise in the final few seconds, but Pjanic missed a 90th-minute penalty.

Tarik Elyounoussi and his Norwegian teammates also lost their first qualifier, falling to a 2-0 defeat to Italy in Oslo. Elyounoussi came on as a 50th-minute substitute for the hosts.

In the final qualifier for next year's European U21 Championship in the Czech Republic, the Danes, captained by Jannik Vestergaard, put on a show. They beat Bulgaria 7-1 in front of 3,000 fans in Aalborg. The TSG defender played the full 90 minutes and scored in the 42nd, heading in Nicolaj Thompson's corner to make it 4-0.
