Bulgaria 2 – 1 Germany


To say that this was an upset was the understatement of the 1990s. Quarter of an hour to go and the Germans are leading. No chance, pal. Up steps Hristo Stoichkov for a free kick just outside the area and bangs in extra time. Extra time? Absolutely not. Baldy man Letchkov is here to ruin your tournament. Many countries have their golden generation, but this for the Bulgarians must be considered platinum. Great players getting to a World Cup semi final and it’s annoying for neutrals that they ran out of steam.
