Largely untroubled this evening as Bosnia had very few efforts on target. He did concede yet Dzeko's goal was unstoppable.
Fairly solid game from the experienced Barcelona defender who despite a shaky opening, improved as the game went on, using his knowledge of the game to keep Dzeko quiet in the second-half.
The Manchester United full-back was a doubt for tonight and did not look at his best. He appeared restricted in attack although he did cope fairly well defensively.
Scored his first goal for France against Albania on Friday yet the Lyon full-back showed hardly any attacking intent on the right side of defence, and looked nervous at times when one-on-one with Lulic.
Not a brilliant game from the Valencia centre-half who allowed Dzeko to turn for Bosnia's opening goal of the game. Improved in the second-hald and looked more commanding.
The Chelsea man was a little quiet tonight and despite perking up in the opening stages of the second period, he was replaced with half hour to go.
His passing in the first half was nowhere near the standards he has recently set for himself as he allowed Bosnia's hard-working midfield to dominate play, before being substituted with half an hour to go.
France's star man tonigh. He grabbed his first international goal for four years from the penalty spot and was the home nation's bright spark throughout. Where would Laurent Blanc's men be now if they did not have the Manchester City man on the field tonight?
Struggled to cope with a motivated Bosnian side in the first half as Misimovic and Co. were allowed to pick holes in the French midfield. However, in all fairness to the Rennes youngster, his game went from strength-to-strength as M'Vila ended the match as one of France's top performers.
Looked a little uncomfortable when leading the line on his own yet soon sparked to life when moved out to the wing, providing the home nation with raw pace on the right as Menez moved to the left.
After a quiet opening 45 minutes, the Paris Saint-Germain wide plyer sprung to life in the second half and looked very threatening, cutting in from the wing on numerous occasions.
The keeper had a very quiet first half, with France rarely threatening his goal and was surprisingly replaced by Begovic at the break.
Solid performance from the centre-half who used to ply his trade in France. He showed excellent positional sense to snuff out France's dangermen and made several telling interceptions.
The centre-half played well this evening and worked hard throughout the game to help Bosnia keep France at bay. He made some important challenges and distributed the ball well.
The experienced full-back picked up an unwanted booking just after the half-hour mark yet did well to keep his cool, especially against the tricky Menez.
Impressive workrate from the right-back who plays his club football for Freiburg. He dealt well with the threat of Malouda for large parts, despite switching off early in the second half when Remy was unable to get onto the end of the Chelsea winger's cross.
Hard-working game from the Lazio man who played on the left-wing this evening. He got forward when possible and did a sterling job to help Papac out defensively.
The veteran midfielder did very well to shield Bosnia's defence. He used all of his experience to break up play on a regular basis and kept his passing simple.
Classy at times from the former Galatasaray midfielder. He provided creativity in the centre of the field and was involved in the majority of the away nation's best attacking play.
Fairly decent in the centre of the park. He competed well especially in the first period yet his influence waned in the the final half-hour.
He showed great quick-thinking to assist Dzeko for his superb opener.He used the ball well and kept possession for his team, despite tiring in the latter stages.
The Manchester City striker worked hard upfront on his own and consistently held the ball up well in the first-half. Took his goal brilliantly and was unfortunate not to see more of the ball in the second period.

Came on for the final half-hour and played well, nearly bringing France back level with an ambitious long-range free-kick.
Helped shore France's defensive game up for the final stages of the game after coming on for Remy.
- D. Cissé
The PSG striker entered the game and provided a focal point to the French attack which helped the home side to pick up the point they required.
Came on at half-time and made several excellent saves, but could not do anything about Nasri's well-taken penalty.
- A. Mravac
Had a quiet game when introduced just after the hour mark and was unable to stop France dominating the closing stages.
Came on for the final minutes to add fresh legs in midfield but struggled to get the ball off the French.
