2 minutes of added time until the first part.
GOAL FOR NORTHERN IRELAND !! 0: 1! WASHINGTON! Unfortunately, the opening hit belonged to Northern Ireland property. At first, everything went wrong with an ambush led by Belorus Kulbakov, but a sign from the VAR room forced him to review the situation. This led to a change of decision and goal for the Northern Irish. It all started with an attack by Paddy McNair, who discovered McGannis with a good cross. Hull’s striker aimed with his head, but Karadjov saved again. This time the addition proved fatal, as Conor Washington was on the same line with Friday Christ and easily scored.
A serious disappointment due to the wasted attack hit ours in the 34th. Ivaylo Chochev cleverly headed for Despodova, but forced his pass and the guest guard crossed in time.
Borislav Tsonev was knocked down on the edge of the penalty area, but the referee from Belarus did not want to rule the offense in our favor.
Kiril Despodov was on the verge of an ambush and in the 25th minute got a great pass in perspective. Our captain used his speed and dangerously entered the field of Northern Ireland. No11, however, closed his shooting corner and was eventually blocked by Paddy McNair.
AND KARAJOV AGAIN! Crisis moments in front of the “lion” door continued. Ivan Turitsov was in trouble against Shane Ferguson, who overtook him once again. The quarterback teamed up with Jordan Thompson, but this time the Stoke City midfielder was extremely disappointed.
WHAT EVENTS OF KARADZHOV! With the arrival in the 17th minute, Bulgaria could have lagged behind in the result, if it were not for the wonderful interventions of Ivan Karadžava. In the first of these, he managed a close-up shot of Paddy McNair, which Velkowski dropped and aimed with his head. There was a clash at the resulting corner. Conor Washington proved to be very lucky and a meter away he also gave up for the “lion” guard.
ЧОЧЕВ! A good opportunity for the “tricolors” opened a quarter of an hour after the start. Kiril Despodov sharply centered from the corner, although it was difficult, Ivaylo Chochev acrobatically directed his head into the extreme corner of the British. The bullet wound a dangerous path, but landed just behind the upper Peacock-Farrell beam.
THOMPSON! The guests scored an early goal in the 6th minute. The Islanders took advantage of our mistake in the center and Jordan Thompson went on a strong attack through the center. His knock on the ground from the rainbow followed, but Karadzhov stretched and parried as much as possible. Fortunately, Connor Washington did not have the option of an allowance.
Yasen Petrov was determined to look for positive change. The coach has issued seven different players compared to his visit to Lithuania. Some effect was achieved in the 4th minute when the “left” came to the offense, just before the Northern Ireland penalty area border. Todor Nedelev bowed down and headed towards the goal, but Peacock-Farrell easily saved it.
SEE WHO’S FAVORITE IN THE MATCH!
THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD QUALIFICATION!
The Bulgarian national team hosts Northern Ireland in the match from the eighth round of world qualifications in Group C. The match is tonight at 21:45 at the national stadium “Vasil Levski”.
The Tricolors lost all chances to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar next year after being singled out last on the Lithuania standings on Saturday. The 1: 3 defeat not only eliminated the chances of our national team for second place, but also seriously lowered the mood in the Bulgarian camp.
SEE HERE WHO IS THE FAVORITE IN THE MATCH!
Today we are leaving for the last home game of the group, where we will hope for three points, which will move Northern Ireland from third place. One of the five points so far for our team has come straight from our upcoming opponent. At the end of March, the Bulgarians managed to leave their visit to Belfast by hiccups. The final result of the first match was a draw.
The qualifying cycle for Northern Ireland is no better either. The team scored four goals, all of which were the only ones successful with 4: 1 as a guest of Lithuania. On Saturday, the British played more than half against Switzerland with a man less and should be happy to have lost just 0-2.
Yasen Petrov: It is not easy to raise a team after such a match, we will not repeat mistakes
The debutant comes out tomorrow
The good news for our boys is that we are playing well in this rivalry and we are not defeated in four games. We haven’t even received a goal in the last three of them.
Otherwise, the leading European champion in Group C is Italy with 14 points. In second place is Switzerland with 11. Northern Ireland and Bulgaria have 5 points each, and after the victory over Yassen Petrov’s team, Lithuania is now with 3, but remains in last place.
Northern Ireland coach: Bulgaria is a very good team
“No easy matches”
