Bulgaria National Team arrive in Japan, begin training ahead of KIRIN CUP SOCCER 2016

Bulgaria National Team arrive in Japan, begin training ahead of KIRIN CUP SOCCER 2016

The Bulgaria National Team arrived at Kansai International Airport on Tuesday 31 May for the KIRIN CUP SOCCER to be held at Toyota Stadium in Toyota, Aichi.

Although the players looked tired because of a long fight, they energetically worked on running and ball passing drills in the afternoon training.

Bulgaria will face SAMURAI BLUE on Friday 3 June, and Bosnia and Herzegovina or Denmark on Tuesday 7.

Coach and Players' Comments

Ivaylo PETEV, Coach
We are tired because of the long trip, but we will try to recover in these two days to go all out for the tournament, where good teams play. Japan are great team and my impression on them is they play offensively. The match is going to be difficult for us, but we will try to erase what they are good at and show what we are good at.

Strahil POPOV
I'm tired from the trip, but it's a natural thing. It's my second time coming to Japan. Japan are good and well prepared and I enjoy every time I visit. Japan are good team and have a lot of famous players. The match will be difficult, but we will try to do our best.
