Hot World Cup player of the day: Toni Šunjić (Bosnia and Herzegovina)

You’ve never heard of Toni Šunjić. He plays for Zorya Luhansk, which placed 7th in the Ukrainian Premier League last season. Saturday’s match against Nigeria was the most important one the 25-year-old centre-back has played in his life (the only other competitive match he’s played for his home country was a qualifier against Liechtenstein). And he performed remarkably well, holding off the Nigerian offense for all but a single goal. Unfortunately, that one goal means the end of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s very first World Cup, but they seem to be on the rise. So best of luck to them in the Euro 2016 qualifiers!
