Bosnian coach representing the Rams at the World Cup

New, comments

The Rams have a presence in Brazil as the World Cup gets underway this week.

Obviously, you're rooting for the USMNT at the World Cup this year (unless, of course, you're one of our readers from outside the US). But you may want to set aside some interest in the team from Bosnia & Herzegovina national team too, as a Rams fan.

BIH coach Safet Sušić is wearing his Rams cap in Brazil. Check it out:

The Bosnian team beat Ivory Coast in a friendly match at the Edward Jones Dome last month.

Of course, there's more than promotional interest there for you. Bosnia has been hit hard by devastating floods this spring, leaving the country to dig out and rebuild in the months ahead. A few wins at the World Cup sure would be a nice distraction.

BIH is in Group F, along with Argentina, Iran and Nigeria. Argentina is the power house in that group, ranked fifth among the teams at the World Cup. Team USA is in Group G. If you want more World Cup reading, the preview from SB Nation is fantastic.
