The Montana team left for Sofia with a group of 18 football players. The permanently injured central defender Nikola Borisov and the second goalkeeper Alexey Andreev, who is serving a one-match suspension, did not make it.
Head coach Nikolay Mitov will no longer rely on forwards Borislav Damyanov and Ivaylo Todorov for the visit to September in the capital. The former is plagued by an old injury, while the 16-year-old leading the attack and the juniors have been rested.
