St. Louis has been a welcoming home to tens of thousands of Bosnian refugees who fled their southeastern European home of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the early '90s, as a result of the breakup of Yugoslavia and the ensuing Bosnian War. And while the national team -- making its first World Cup appearance ever next summer -- lost 2-0 to an Argentinian team that's expected to challenge for that World Cup in Brazil (thanks to two goals from an in-form Sergio Aguero), just about 99.9 percent of the 30,000 or so fans at Busch Stadium for the international friendly were loud-and-proud Bosnians.
