I saw the whole match, it was a tough one and to be quite honest if Cyprus had taken their chances, Bulgaria would have had egg on their faces. But football sometimes brings results due to luck. given theri due, Bulgaria held out and made the score look as if the match was easy - Far from it. Something for the fans to cheer about, they haven't had much to celebrate recently and were in good voice at the end of it, but wihtout any fingernails.
Bulgaria overcame the absence of star striker Dimitar Berbatov and reignited their hopes of World Cup qualification with a hard-fought win over Cyprus in Sofia to claim their first victory in Group Eight.
