The away game of the playoff for the right to play in the B division of the League of Nations against Bulgaria will take place today, February 23, in the Bulgarian town of Kirzhali at the central stadium "Arda-Arena". The meeting starts at 16:00 Kyiv time.

"The backbone of the Bulgarian national team is made up of female legionnaires, most of whom play in Switzerland, Austria, and Romania. Mostly the Bulgarians act as the second number, trying to find Simona Petkova from the Swiss "Arau" at the point of the attack with long passes. We had the opportunity to study the game of the Bulgarian team in detail, and now the main thing is to show our best qualities on the football field." said the day before, the coach of the national team of Ukraine Volodymyr Pyatenko, who was Kateryna Monzul the head coach of the team already without the prefix "v. at.".
