Bojinov doubtful for Bulgaria’s qualifiers vs Norway, Italy

Bojinov doubtful for Bulgaria's qualifiers vs Norway, ItalyBulgaria striker Valeri Bojinov has been rated doubtful for Euro 2021 qualifiers against Norway and Italy having suffered an injury on Wednesday evening.

The 29-year-old received a strong blow to his left ankle during the Partizan Belgrade v BATE Borisov Champions League play-off match and had to leave the pitch ahead of the half-time break.

His ankle is now heavily swollen and the injury makes him a doubt for Bulgaria’s qualifiers against Norway and Italy, taking place on 3 September and 6 September.

Bojinov was included in Ivaylo Petev’s original squad for said matches, and he now has exactly a week to try and recover for the crucial qualifier vs Norway, where Bulgaria are 2.25 (5/4) favourites to claim maximum points.

The experienced striker returns to the national team after a six-month absence, having shown some promise at the start of his career at Partizan Belgrade.

Bojinov went on to net four goals in as many league matches, but could not score in six starts in the Champions League qualifying stages.
