@Kirin Cup

We will play in this year's Kirin Cup edition along with the hosts Japan, Denmark and BiH. Our semifinal is vs. Japan on Friday, 3 June @12:40 CET.

We have been in a decent run of results lately, beating Portugal and Macedonia away. Also, we have won our last three games in Japan:

Good chance for Bulgaria to win this trophy.
Bosnia is sending its B side.

Bosnia's priority is to trial new players in the team and get them ready for the World Cup qualifiers starting September as friendly games are limited. These players think they can cause an upset or two. Should be interesting to see what they can show in Japan. I absolutely support this decision by our manager even if we lose both games. I do not expect to see us in the final. I would also be disappointed if Japan win this, as host.

Full list of who is going can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bosnia...#Current_squad

This decision has caused a backlash by Japanese coaching staff however as they expected Bosnia to be at full strength.

Oh boy...
Petev is a disaster. Such a limited coach...
We are going to suffer a lot in the WC quailed if he stays.

Well done, Kitties!
