The Bulgarian football coach, Stanimir Stoilov, has announced his starting 11 for Wednesday evening's World Cup qualifier against Cyprus in Sofia.
The lineup will be identical to the one that played in Ireland on Saturday with only one exception, Radostin Kishishev will take the place of defender Zhivko Milanov who was injured in the game.
Manchester City striker Valeri Bozhinov will also be available but will not start the game because he is not yet fully recovered from his injury.
Wednesday's game with Cyprus is the 'moment of truth' in Bulgaria's 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign. If Bulgaria fails to secure three points they are unlikely to be able to challenge for the second position in Group 8.
Bulgaria Starting 11: Dimitar Ivankov (g), Stanislav Manolev, Iliyan Stoyanov, Igor Tomasic, Radostin Kishshishev, Dimitar telkiyski, Stanislav Angelov, Stiliyan Petrov (c), Blago Georgiev, Ivelin Popov and Dimitar rangelov.
Substitutes: Nikolay Mihaylov (g), Yordan Todorov, Elin Topuzakov, Chavdar yankov, Velizar Dimitrov, Valeri Bozhinov and Dimitar Makriev.
