Petrov Back To Bulgaria Squad!

As you know the time has come for the next round of the European Qualifiers for the Euro 2008. Bulgaria will face Albania and the good news is that the ex captain of the team Stilian Petrov is back. After long talks with the coach Stoichkov, they have decided to forget about their problems and do everything for the good of the team. There are mixed feelings about the coming back of Petrov, however I think that he will lead Bulgaria to the win against Albania.
BTW the Bulgarian league is getting very interesting and tomorrow there will be some key games. I will report on them late tomorrow. See you later people.

FIFA.Com - Lokomotiv Sofia crush Rodopa to go second

Lokomotiv Sofia pressed their claims for a European place next season when a 5-0 rout of lowly Rodopa Smolyan on Friday helped them climb to second place in the Bulgarian Premier League.
Champions Levski Sofia, unbeaten in the league, top the standings with 45 points from 17 matches, followed by Lokomotiv on 42 points from 18 matches. CSKA Sofia are third on 39.
The Railwaymen, who registered their fourth consecutive league win, took the lead after 15 minutes when central defender Georgi Markov powered in a header from veteran Hristo Koilov's cross.
Ivan Paskov doubled Lokomotiv's lead nine minutes after the interval while substitute Hristo Markov put the issue beyond doubt when he made it 3-0 in the 64th minute as Koilov turned provider again.
Rodopa's misery was completed in the last quarter of an hour when league top scorer Tsvetan Genkov netted twice to take his tally to 14.
Rodopa moved a step closer to relegation after their sixth game in a row without winning. They are 15th on 11 points.
In Friday's other game, Marek Dupnitsa thumped bottom club Chernomorets Burgas 4-1 and climbed to 11th.

Loko Sf - Burno 3:2

Loko won 3:2 in their second friendly game in Agia Nappa. The goals scored Tsvetan Genkov 2 and the new player Djilas. Loko missed a penalty kick, Atanasov kicked the ball in the hands of the keeper. Loko played almost the whole game with 10 players because Georgi Markov received a red card. The result doesn’t portrait the reality because Loko made many substitutions, and the key players were taken off the field in the first half. Loko played a great game and they made their coach Stefan Grozdanov very happy. The good news is that Genkov is back to scoring goals and we are hoping that he will score even more goals the second part of the season.
