• Olimpijski Stadion Asim Ferhatović Hase, Sarajevo
Referee: D. Skomina
• Attendance: 24000
E. Džeko 8', 90'
V. Ibišević 30'
E. Johnson 55'
J. Altidore 59', 85', 86'
That's it! An incredible second half effort from the USA and Jozy Altidore has seen the team win its 12th straight game. It's a 4-3 final in Sarajevo
GOAL BOSNIA! Dzeko scores his second on a great flicked header and it's not over yet. 4-3
ANOTHER GOAL ALTIDORE! Bradley slips the Sunderland striker though well and he finishes strongly. A second-half hat trick. My oh my. 4-2
GOAL USA! Altidore scores a fantastic curling free kick and the USA has turned it around!! Wow, what a second half performance!
Castillo barrels forward and draws a free kick in a decent position for the USA
The USA looking to keep its 11-game win streak alive, as Bradley finds Parkhurst on the right flank. The Augsburg defender sees his shot blocked, though
Misimovic hits the free kick into the wall, and the ball falls kindly into Howard's arms
Dzeko tripped from behind by Cameron, setting up a free kick just outside the box
More impressive stuff from Johannsson, who weaves his way though the Bosnian defense before firing straight at the goalkeeper. Great first touch and turn though
Great touch by Johannsson to set himself up for a shot, which is saved at the near post. Encouraging stuff from the AZ man so far
Misimovic JUST over with the free kick. Good effort but Howard had it covered
Brooks gets into a wrestling match with Dzeko and concedes a foul. Dangerous free kick upcoming
Bosnia starting to get back in the game, a volley off a corner is cleared out by Altidore for another corner
Big save Howard! The U.S. keeper comes up with his first big stop of the match, denying Visca's shot at the near post
Here comes Aron Johannsson for his first USA cap, replacing E. Johnson. Corona on for Bedoya as well
Great run by Fabian Johnson, who slips Altidore in. The Sunderland striker takes one touch and cracks a finish with his left to the far corner. Great play all around
GOAL USA! Altidore scores and it's 2-2!!
The 4-4-2 appears to be working wonders for the USA, which has been the better team so far in the second half
GOAL USA! Great ball by Bradley over the top to Altidore, who touches around the goalkeeper and Eddie Johnson is left with a wide open goal from 18 yards out. 2-1
Altidore with a good ball for E. Johnson, but the Sounders man can't direct his cross to anyone
Another penalty shout for the USA, which wants a hand ball off the corner kick. Referee waves them away though. Upon replay, looked borderline
Good work from Bedoya on the flank, winning the U.S. a corner.
Second half is underway. Castillo is in for Diskerud, so it looks like the USA will switch to a 4-4-2 with EJ up top with Altidore
Halftime. USA hasn't played terribly, but Bosnia has been dangerous on the counter and took advantage of the U.S. defense twice to make it 2-0
The U.S. has had plenty of chances on set pieces, but hasn't really been able to carve out a good chance yet. Perhaps Landon Donovan or Graham Zusi on the field could remedy that in the future
E. Johnson draws a foul 40 yards out. Bradley whips in a free kick, but it's not high enough and easily cleared out
Good one-on-one defending from Brooks, who stabs the ball away from Dzeko
Jones with a bad giveaway in the midfield leads to Pjanic being slipped though. The Roma man's shot goes wide though.
Unfortunate for the U.S., which was starting to carve out more for itself. Long way back now
GOAL BOSNIA! Ibisevic with the neat-post header after the U.S. had initially dealt with the corner. Maybe a hint of offside on the play, though
Cameron with more good work, cutting out another near-post cross for a corner kick
Yellow CardEmir Spahic
Diskerud finds Altidore with a header and Spahic cynically pulls him down from behind as the Sunderland man had plenty of space in front of him. Yellow card
Chance Bosnia! Dzeko is played in behind the USA defense and his near-post ball to Ibisevic is defended well at the near post by Cameron
USA starting to grow into the game a bit here, having a bit more possession in the last 5-10 minutes
Altidore's free kick flicks off the top of the wall and out for a corner
Altidore bodies up his defender well and draws a foul in a dangerous spot
Penalty shout for the USA as Diskerud is bundled over in the box, but play is waved on
Diskerud getting muscled off the ball a couple times in a row. Definitely a jump up in competition from what he experienced at the Gold Cup
Calm defending by Brooks, heading an aerial ball back to Howard
USA having trouble keeping the ball at the moment, as relentless Bosnia pressure is taking its toll
Good challenge by Spahic in the box on E. Johnson, whose stepover is thwarted
GOAL BOSNIA! Dzeko slipped through after a poor giveaway by E. Johnson 20 yards from the goal. The City striker's shot is saved by Howard, but he puts the rebound in the back of the net
Evans staying his ground against Salihovic, defending well one-on-one. Out for a corner which is cleared
Great ball by Bedoya to find E. Johnson in the box, but the Sounders forward is unable to get a shot off as the Bosnia defense converges.
First touch for Brooks, who clears the ball forward. All eyes will be on the center back
Anthems are done and the players are just about ready to go
The teams are making their way out onto the field and we'll be underway momentariy
And here's the Bosnia XI: Begovic, Spahic, Bicakcic, Salihovic, Zukanovic, Lulic, Rahimic, Pjanic, Misimovic, Ibisevic, Dzeko.
The big news in the USA lineup, of course, is 20-year-old German-American center back John Anthony Brooks getting his first cap
