The national Under-21 team has never qualified for a major tournament but has had a couple of near misses. In 2006 they played Czech Republic during the 2007 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification playoffs but lost on aggregate, the Czechs winning 2:1 at home [1] while the result was 1:1 in Sarajevo.[2]

One of the most memorable results of the Bosnia and Herzegovina U-21 team was on October 10, 2002. Germanys U-21 team was defeated 5-1 in Zenica at the Bilino Polje Stadium.[3] These two teams have also played out a thrilling 4:4 draw on 10. September 2012 as part of UEFA U21 Euro 2013 Qualifiers, where Bosnia finished in second position on the table just failing to reach play-offs.

On the 10. May 2011, the Committee for the normalization of the Bosnian Football Federation appointed Vlado Jagodić as Head Coach.[4]
