Sheffield United: Muhamed Besic called up by Bosnia & Herzegovina for November internationals

Sheffield United midfielder Muhamed Besic has been called up for Bosnia & Herzegovina’s upcoming international fixtures (via @SheffieldUnited).

The Everton loanee will be in their squad as they take on Italy and Liechtenstein in crucial UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Besic began the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign as a regular for Bosnia, starting five of their first six Group J fixtures (via Transfermarkt).

However, whilst he was in the squad for their most recent matches back in October he failed to make an appearance, watching both from the bench.

He will hope that he can force his way back into manager Robert Prosinečki’s starting line-up for their final qualifiers of the campaign, two matches that they must win to stand any chance of automatic qualification (BBC Sport).

The call-up to the squad comes despite the 27-year-old not getting regular playing time so far in his loan spell at Bramall Lane.

Indeed he has managed just nine minutes of action in the Premier League so far which came against West Ham, although he did start both of the Blades’ Carabao Cup ties against Blackburn Rovers and Sunderland (via Transfermarkt). Altogether, he’s played just 189 minutes of domestic action this season.

Despite a lack of appearances for his club, it comes as no surprise that Besic is once again included selected by Bosnia.

The last time he wasn’t in a squad was way back in May 2018 when they played a friendly against Montenegro and he has been a regular for his country since making his debut in 2010 with 43 caps to his name (Transfermarkt).

However, his lack of appearances for Sheffield United could cost him a place in the starting 11 when they take on Italy in their first of two outings.
