Susic takes Bosnia positives

Bosnia boss Safet Susic says that his side will head home in positive spirits after their World Cup campaign ended with a 3-1 win over Iran.

Having suffered defeat to Argentina and Nigeria in their previous Group F outings, Susic's men had nothing but pride to play for in Salvador.

However, goals from Edin Dzeko, Miralem Pjanic and Avdija Vrsajevic ensured that they would leave Brazil on a high note.

Susic said: "We dominated the game and deserved to win.

"Although I know that Iran wanted to progress, the victory was important for us.

"We can now go home with our heads held high. We wanted to leave a good impression, but we're not satisfied because we think that we could have done more.

"I'm not being arrogant when I say that, but if we'd played a bit better against Nigeria and had a bit more luck, I think we would have made the round of 16.

"I was a little surprised by the way Iran played today, they can attack teams extremely well and I was expecting them to be adventurous, but I thought at times it was almost as if they would have been content to draw."
