Kerim Memija belongs to a very talented generation of players in Bosnia, born in the years 1996-1997. Other players from his generation worthy of note are Andrej Modic, Amir Hadziahmetovic, Samir Radovac or Ismar Hairlahovic. This season, Kerim is one of the revelations of the Bosnian league. Having broken through to the first team of Zeljeznicar, he’s getting rave reviews. According to some, he should be getting called up to the senior national team, although it might seem to be a better idea to focus on the U-19 UEFA European Championship qualifications taking place this year, where the young Dragons have a chance for success.
