Philadelphia Union midfielder Haris Medunjanin has been called up to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s national team for their upcoming friendlies on March 23rd and 27th. Both matches will be played away from home, as Bosnia will travel to Razgrad and Le Havre to take on Bulgaria and World Cup-bound Senegal, respectively.

With 58 appearances, Medunjanin is the third-most capped player on Bosnia’s roster, behind Serie A stars Edin Džeko and Miralem Pjanić. If he appears in both friendlies, the Union midfielder will become the seventh Bosnian player to clear 60 caps since Bosnia and Herzegovina began play in 1993.

This is Medunjanin’s second call-up of the year, as he captained a Bosnia squad full of domestic-based players in their January friendly against the United States Men’s National Team.

Medunjanin is one of four Union players on international duty during the upcoming break, joining Andre Blake (Jamaica), Mark McKenzie (United States U20s) and Matt Real (United States U20s).

The Union are off for the international break and don’t return to action until they visit the Colorado Rapids on March 31st.
