Owners, and even wound up before the first match of the tournament, had to worry about. Experts were identified in the Bulgarian team a couple of attacking players. First of all, born in Beirut ethnic Lebanese midfielder Eyad Hammoud.
In the top League of Bulgaria, he made his live debut with the Plovdiv Lokomotiv at the age of 15 years 3 months and 26 days, becoming the second youngest player in its history. Having been in the beginning of this year on shows in the “Sheffield Wednesday”, Hammoud summer, returned to England, now signed with “Sheffield” a two-year contract. Plays, of course, for the youth team. But striker Varna “Cherno more” Martin Minchev now rarely comes on to the replacements in the top League of Bulgaria.
But we have our stars, and some of them even kept secret. In particular, in our application, published on the website of FFU, there was no attacking midfielder Dynamo” Vincent Voloshin, who plays for the national team senior year age. In a real application Voloshin came, and it was he who opened the scoring in the match, which initially is not very pleased or Ukrainian fans, no coach Oleg Kuznetsov. On the 19th minute he received the first yellow card, and on the 28th the second and left field midfielder Denis Pidruchny of the capital’s Olympic College. However in the 38th minute Voloshin brought our team forward from a free kick and it went.
In the beginning of the second half of the second scoring strike was the midfielder of Shakhtar Michael Mudrich, who was assisted by Dynamo forward Ivan Derohan. To large account brought substitute Lviv striker Daniel Sickan, who scored with the transfer of Voloshin.
