Young Lions

Bulgaria U19 qualified for the finals of the 2013/14 European U19 Championship (19-31 July in Hungary - szövkap, Im coming), by winning their Elite Round group. The Young Lions eliminated Sweden, Italy and the Czech Republic.

What makes me even more proud is the fact that four out of the five 'Future Stars of My Country' (the ones eligible for selection in the U19 formation) nominated by me here were the driving force of this success. Bobby Tsonev, Stanislav Dryanov and Antonio Vutov have all scored goals in the process, while the keeper Alex Lyubenov took a penalty awarded to the Czechs.

БЪЛГАРИ ЮНАЦИ!

Two of the anchormen of this U19 BG team are going to miss out - attacking MF underwent knee surgery, while playmaker Vutov is injured with tiny chances to recover in time. Both are important and having been a long time with this team... The Litex striker Despodov is also unfit recovering from an ankle injury. Hope the other boys shall remain healthy and make names for themselves.

Elite Round U19, 23-28 March 2016

Bulgaria U19 travels to Croatia for their Elite Round qualification matches from the 2016 European U19 Championship. We are playing Croatia (23.03 in Rijeka) Belgium (25.03 at Kostrena) and Scotland (28.03 at Kostrena). Only one team qualifies to the finals in Germany (11-24 July).

We are not believed to have a real chance for qualification, but Svetoslav Todorov (Toddy) is a clever manager and I somehow expect our boys to overachieve, A couple of interesting names in our team, such as Bozhidar Kraev (Levski Sofia, who has been in the radar of Man City and Juventus lately), Alex Georgiev, Kerchev...


Goalkeepers:

Mihail Mihaylov (Beroe)
Dimitar Mitov (Charlton Athletic)


Defenders:

Georgi Kupenov (Dobrudzha)
Ventsislav Kerchev (Ludogorets)
Stoycho Atanasov (Litex)
Viktor Mitsakov (Litex)
Galin Minkov (Loko Mezdra)
Dimitar Burov (Slavia Sofia)
Christian Dimitrov (Botev Plovdiv)
Ivaylo Angelov (Beroe)


Midfield:

Angel Maksimov (Slavia Soia)
Georgi Yomov (Slavia Sofia)
Bozhidar Kraev (Levski)
Stefan Alichkov (Levski)
Angel Lyaskov (Litex)
Antonio Georgiev (Ludogorets)
Denislav Aleksandrov (Ludogorets)
Radoslav Apostolov (Botev Plovdiv)


Forwards:

Tonislav Yordanov (Litex)
Aleksandar Georgiev (Litex)
Tomas Tsvyatkov (Ludogorets)
Ivlein Iliev (Beroe)

Well done, Kitties!
