ON THIS DAY -- March 20 March 20, 1994: SOCCER - British soldiers cheer on the United Nations team during a match against FC Sarajevo, which was played in front of 20,000 fans in the former 1984 Winter Olympics Stadium Zetra. Eight years after the erstwhile Yugoslavia became the first socialist state to host the Winter Games, Sarajevo was at the heart of the Bosnian War which lasted until 1995. The match, which ended 4-0 in favour of the local team, was also marked by entertainment by British army parachutists and a Buckingham Palace band. "It's a very big event ... By this match today I believe we're advancing the peace process in Bosnia-Herzegovina and not just in Sarajevo," Britain's Michael Rose, the head the U.N. peacekeeping efforts in Bosnia, said.
