Standard Liege midfielder Deni Milosevic has been cleared by FIFA to play for the national team of Bosnia and Hercegovina, according to the latest reports.
The attacking midfielder was born in Belgium to Bosnian parents and has spent his entire career up to date at Standard Liege.
Milosevic made quite a few appearances for Belgium’s Under-16, Under-17 and Under-18 sides, but has decided to switch his allegiance to the Southeast European country.
The youngster has so far made six competitive outings for the Belgian giants, but is regarded as one of club’s hottest prospects.
Bosnian Football Federation has now been informed by FIFA that the 20-year-old is now eligible for selection by Bosnia coach Mehmed Bazdarevic.
The 60-year-old will name his squad for Euro 2016 qualifiers vs Belgium and Andorra on Monday, 24 August, and there is a good chance Milosevic will make the team, while Jasmin Buric (1/0) and Mario Vrancic (0/0) are almost certain to receive call-ups.
The Dragons currently sit one point behind third-placed Israel in the Group B standings, meaning the away game against Belgium could prove crucial to their hopes of reaching the tournament finals.
