What a slice in Sofia!
In the Bulgarian capital it flows from buckets. Place? Totally soaked and pancake! On the frontiers who will play here in the EM 2023 Qualifiers…
But the players from coach Mauro Lustrinelli scored an important away win! The fact that it was only 1-0 up in the 45th minute with a superb free kick diverted directly from Servet midfielder Kastriot Emery fits the picture. Building a well-prepared game on such a surface is practically impossible. Again and again the pass gets stuck in the middle of the road. The principle of chance always applies. The two teams not only fight against each other, but also against the terrain of the pond. Once Noah Okafor runs unimpeded towards the Bulgarian goal, but has no chance to cleverly control the skin …
happiness before the break
However, the Swiss selection is still great and works in a quiet way. 1-0 is the perfect response to the opening goal that was rejected by the Bulgarians, who shot the ball past Amir Saypi, but whistled when they cheered. Because the ball was said to have been out of bounds before. A very difficult decision, a happy decision from a Swiss point of view!
Of course, Lustrinelli’s forces don’t care. She plays more dominantly after the break, does a lot more in this (aquatic) game – and ultimately achieves mini victory over the rounds.
With success, the national under-21 team kept the aspiring Bulgarians some distance away at the table. After the two mandatory assignments against Gibraltar at the start of the qualifying campaign, Okafor, Emery & Co. passed the final tests against the Netherlands (2:2/Friday) and Bulgaria.
In order to keep group favorites Holland at bay, it is absolutely necessary to use three more throws in November against Moldova and Wales.
