SARAJEVO, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- A late flurry of goals saw Bosnia and Herzegovina beat Lichtenstein 5-0 in their Euro 2020 Group J qualifier on Thursday evening in Zenica.

Amer Gojak opened the scoring for the hosts from an Edin Dzeko assist 11 minutes into the match, as Bosnia set out their stall to attack from the off at the Bilino Polje stadium.

The second half saw more pressure from the hosts, but it took until the 80th minute for the net to bulge again, when Haris Duljevic's shot deflected in off two Liechtenstein players.

That was the signal for the floodgates to open, as Dzeko made it 3-0 five minutes later, before Edin Visca and Gojak added the fourth and fifth respectively in the following four minutes.

With the victory, Bosnia now sit third in Group J behind Italy and Finland. Their next game is against Armenia in Yerevan on Sunday.
