SARAJEVO – Bosnia striker Edin Dzeko will miss Sunday’s Euro 2016 qualifier away to Israel due to a calf injury, and coach Safet Susic said his team cannot win the match without him.

Dzeko’s absence will be a bitter blow to Bosnia’s hopes of getting its Group B campaign on track after taking only two points from the opening three games.

The robust hitman limped off the pitch four minutes after coming on as a second half substitute in Manchester City’s 2-2 Premier League draw at QPR on Saturday.

“If Dzeko can’t play we will be resigned to playing for a draw against Israel, because we have no hope of winning without him,” Susic told Bosnia’s FENA news agency on Monday.
