They're a European team that will have more than a few sympathetic followers from North America.

Bosnia-Herzegovina on Monday unveiled their 24-man provisional World Cup roster more than a week ahead of the May 13 FIFA deadline.

On the preliminary list for Bosnia-Herzegovina are former St. Louis University star Vedad Ibisevic and ex-Canadian national team goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, who switched to represent the country of his birth. The USMNT recently defeated Ibisevic & Co. in a thriller last August.
