Bosnia and Herzegovina achieved their best result when they reached the 2014 FIFA World Cup as winners of their qualifying group. They were eliminated after narrow group stage losses to Argentina and Nigeria and a win over Iran.
The national team has appeared in numerous other qualification play-offs, including the 2010 FIFA World Cup play-offs loss to Portugal, as well as the qualifying play-offs for UEFA Euro 2012 and UEFA Euro 2016, losing to Portugal and the Republic of Ireland respectively, preventing the team from reaching their first UEFA European Championship.
Bosnia and Herzegovina have seen a steady rise in their fortunes on the international football stage in recent times. Historically, Bosnia, a war torn and divided nation, has managed multiple playoff appearances and has qualified to one FIFA World Cup. More often than not, the team produces solid results in qualifiers and challenges for a top spot, although the team is frequently unlucky in their crucial games.
The early period saw Bosnia and Herzegovina have to wait until the 1998 FIFA World Cup qualifiers to compete for a place in a major competition. Bosnia finished fourth in a group that included Greece, Denmark, Croatia and Slovenia. This was then subsequently followed by further disappointment with lackluster campaigns in the UEFA Euro 2000 qualifiers, as well as the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
Bosnia failed to make the grade in the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, despite being unbeaten at home, and the UEFA Euro 2008 qualifiers, which saw their poor home form cost them. Bosnia and Herzegovina then experienced double heartbreak, bowing out twice in the playoffs to Portugal, first 2–0 on aggregate in the 2010 FIFA World Cup decider and then 6–2 on aggregate in the UEFA Euro 2012 decider.
They managed to finish third in a group which included Argentina, and tasted their first victory thanks to a 3–1 win over Iran. Nigeria pipped Bosnia for second place in the group with a 1–0 win marred with controversy following an incorrectly disallowed goal scored by Edin Džeko in the first half.

Bosnia finished third in the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifiers behind Belgium and Wales. After making an unfortunate start to the qualifiers with a surprise 2–1 home defeat against Cyprus and managing just two points through four games, manager Safet Sušić was dismissed and replaced by Mehmed Baždarević.
After the slow start, the Bosnian performance improved dramatically, with five wins in their remaining six matches, including victories over Wales and Israel along with three clean sheets. However, they ultimately failed to qualify after a two legged playoff encounter with Ireland. Bosnia failed to make back-to-back FIFA World Cups after failing to qualify to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The following players were called up for the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying play-offs game against Northern Ireland on 8 October and for the 2020–21 UEFA Nations League games against Netherlands on 11 October and Poland on 14 October 2020.

FIFA ranking historyEdit
FIFA-ranking yearly averages for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Bosnia and Herzegovina also used Bilino Polje, located in the city of Zenica, for many of its home games in the past. The stadium, built and opened in 1972, underwent many reconstruction works since 2012 in order to comply with standards needed to host international games.
A popular nickname of all Bosnian sport teams and/or sportsman is "Zmajevi" (Bosnian: zmajevi, lit. 'dragons'), popularized by football TV commentator Mustafa Mijajlović during Belgium vs. Bosnia (2-4) 2010 WC qualification game on 28 March 2009.
General agreement among Bosnia and Herzegovina sports fans is that nick has historical context, it is considered as an allusion to the famous Bosnian general Husein Gradaščević, who fought for Bosnian independence, and who was known as the "Dragon of Bosnia".
In both local and foreign media, they are sometimes referred to as the Golden Lilies, which was original nickname given to all country's teams and sportsman by fans after independence in reference to official state insignia at the time (flag and coat of arms), which itself referred to the golden lily, the historical state insignia, featured on the coat of arms of the ruling Bosnian medieval Kotromanić dynasty.
A large number of national team's supporters come from Northern and Western Europe, North America, and some from as far away as Australia. Most of these fans are members of BHFanaticos, Belaj Boys, BHLegion, Armija Zmajeva (Dragons Army) and Ljuti Krajišnici groups.
In the game against Norway, at the Ullevål Stadium in Oslo on 24 March 2007, Bosnian fans caused an hour-long delay due to an unprecedented amount of flares that had been thrown onto the pitch in protest against corruption in the (now former) Football Federation of Bosnia. On 1 June 2008, former Bosnia and Herzegovina players Meho Kodro and Elvir Bolić organised a friendly humanitarian game in Sarajevo called "Kodro, Bola and Friends" between former Bosnian football legends, in order to gain support, to say its time for changes in the Bosnian Football Association. The game was organised to commence at the same time as Bosnia and Herzegovina national side faced Azerbaijan in a friendly in Zenica. The attendance in Sarajevo was 15,000 while in Zenica only about 50. The game in Sarajevo was organised by the Federal TV who broadcast the humanitarian game live. A significant number of Bosnian International players were involved in the game, which ended 11–9 in favour of Team Kodro.
Before every game, during the playing of the Bosnian national anthem, BH Fanaticos sing lyrics from the old national anthem Jedna si jedina, as the current national anthem does not have lyrics in all international sports Bosnia is part of (mainly football, basketball and handball).
The team kit is currently produced by German sports company Adidas. General sponsor of the team is BH Telecom. Also sponsoring the team are Elektroprivreda Bosne i Hercegovine and Ziraat Bank.
