Soccer: Senegal hold Bosnia to 0-0 draw in World Cup warm-up

(Reuters) - Senegal continued their World Cup build-up with a dour 0-0 stalemate against Bosnia in the French city of Le Havre on Tuesday, a second successive draw after they were held 1-1 by Uzbekistan last week.

Senegal were on the back foot for much of the contest against the Bosnians, who failed to qualify for the 32-nation tournament in Russia.

Forward Edin Visca missed a flurry of chances for Bosnia and had a goal disallowed for offside, with striker Edin Dzeko and Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac also going close as Senegal keeper Abdoulaye Diallo made several fine saves.

Moussa Sow missed two chances at the other end but Senegal rarely threatened against their more adventurous opponents. The African nation are in Group H with Colombia, Poland and Japan at the June 14 - July 15 World Cup.
