Matches[edit]

A meeting was held in Barcelona, Spain on 8 January 2008 to determine the fixtures for Group 5. However, the Bosnian delegation arrived several hours late, and Spain and Turkey were unable to agree on scheduling.[1][2] Since the fixtures were not finalised by 16 January 2008 deadline, FIFA conducted a random draw to determine the fixtures.[3] The draw took place in Zagreb, Croatia at 16:00 CET on 30 January 2008, on the eve of the XXXII Ordinary UEFA Congress.[4]
