KOSTAJNICA, Bosnia-Herzegovina: Pretty much any football match played at the Kostajnica field is an international: The grounds were split between Croatia and Bosnia after the dissolution of Yugoslavia and players now cross in and out of the EU throughout the match.However, the manager is rarely challenged, fans from the two countries mingle freely and the border isn't marked on the field.One town like that is Kostajnica, where the border now cuts through the river Una over 20 times on the outskirts and then runs straight through town.So if Sead Ikanovic wants to work on his land or harvest his crops in Croatia, he first has to wash his tractor as one cannot enter the EU with dirty tires. Then he drives to the nearby border crossing to show his passport and then to his field.
