Bosnia-Herzegovina 3 (Dzeko 29, 53, Ibisevic 36)

Greece 1 (Gekas 90)

Edin Dzeko scored twice as Bosnia beat Greece 3-1 on Friday to move three points clear at the top of their group. Dzeko led the Bosnian threat, and beat Greek goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis in the 30th minute, expertly heading in a free kick from Zvjezdan Misimovic.

Six minutes later, Karnezis blocked a penalty from Misimovic, but Vedad Ibisevic got the better of a disorganized Greek defense to tap in the loose ball. Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers awarded the penalty after Giorgos Tzavelas had brought down Mensur Mujdza with a clumsy tackle.

Greece brought on striker Fanis Gekas in the second half but went 3-0 down in the 54th when Misimovic set up Dzeko for another header. Gekas scored Greece’s consolation goal in injury time off a cross from Georgios Samaras.
