Prostějov, Czech Republic
Canada 4 Bulgaria 0 (att 10,000 including 30 Bulgarian supporters)
I honestly felt sorry for the Bulgarian team. They were trying really hard, but they were just not good enough (slow etc..). Canada scored two goals in the first 26 minutes. Both were off headers (keeper had no chance). Canada added one more late in the half, and finished off the scoring in the 60th minute (or so).
Bulgaria had one decent chance on goal, but the player hit the side netting (he was obviously frustrated from the poor shot). I was really hoping Bulgaria was going to score a goal. The best player on the field was #7 (sorry no name), but he was taken off the pitch in the 60th minute.
I do have two names from the Bulgarian team (Lyubomir Hadzhiyski, and Metodi Milanov).
Bulgaria just couldn't keep up with the speed of the Canadian team, and the physical play.
So what type of team did Bulgaria send to this competition? I have a feeling these players knew this might be there only chance to represent Bulgaria in an international competition. They were very grateful for the support they received from the Bulgarian fans in the crowd.
