Bulgaria

Chances Of Qualification For The European Championships

Bulgaria have twice qualified for the European Championships Finals, in 1996 and 2004, but they are yet to get out of the group stages and generally have a better record in the World Cup, their outstanding achievement as a footballing nation was their semi final appearance in the 1994 World Cup.

The current generation of Bulgarian players doesn't quite have the same level of quality, especially since the retirement from international football of star striker Dimitar Berbatov. Bulgaria will always be a difficult team to face though and when the European Championships Finals open up to 24 rather than 16 teams as of 2016 it would be no surprise to see them become very regular qualifiers.
