Besic Back In Action

Mo Besic was given match action as Bosnia and Herzegovina drew 0-0 at home to Greece in World Cup Qualifying Group H on Friday night.

The Blues midfielder came on as a 77th-minute substitute in Zenica for his first international appearance since May 2016.

The 24-year-old missed the majority of the 2016/17 campaign after suffering a knee injury while playing for Everton in Wayne Rooney’s testimonial at Manchester United last August.

Besic featured for the Toffees’ Under-23s towards the end of the season to help regain match fitness and was named on the bench for the first team’s final two matches of the league term.

Bosnia’s goalless draw leaves them third in Group H, a point behind second-place Greece.

Belgium lead the table by two points thanks to a 2-0 victory away to Estonia.

Romelu Lukaku played the full 90 minutes for the Red Devils, while his Blues teammate Kevin Mirallas was an unused substitute, as the visitors won courtesy of goals by Dries Mertens and West Brom’s Nacer Chadli.
