  • Description

    For twenty three years Bulgaria was waiting to defeat Hungary and at last on Hay the 19th of May in a spectacular game Bulgaria won with the classical crushing score three nil. Last victory against Hungary was in 1948, with three draws and nine wins for Hungary. But now all present soccer experts like George Boulon, Hoffer, Hungarian & Bulgarian journalists were unanimous: Bulgaria won in great style, making Hungarian stars Fazekash, Panchich and Albert (centre forward, footballer of the year 1968 in Europe) seem helpless.

    Best players on the ground were the Bulgarian captain Penev (No3) and Bonev (No8). The Russian referee Bahramov was at his best too.

    After a poor game against Norway, 1-1 in Sofia, Bulgaria is leader in the qualification group now, including France as well with score 4-1, with France and Hungary 4-2 each and three points all of them. Norway has only one point and goal score 3-7. Goals scored: B. Kolev, 38th min., Petkov, 47th min, and Velitchkov ( wonderful header after superb cut from Vassilev) 72nd min.
