Team News 
Derry City’s Ronan Boyce was called-up to the Under-21s to replace Cardiff City’s Mark McGuinness. 
 
Manager Jim Crawford said: “Bosnia are well organised with really good individuals but they’re physical. We’ve seen them in numerous games and in some games they’ve pushed on and pressed and other games they’ve dropped off so it will be interesting to see what they do. It will be a great challenge but one the players are up for.”

Conor Coventry said: “We’ve got another really good Under-21s team here and we sat down and it is absolutely clear that we want to get to the European Championship Finals. We’re capable and when you see the quality in the squad it goes to show that the future is in good hands.”
