Sometimes, all that a team needs is support from their fans to achieve great things.
The Armenian side don’t have much international experience, but they do submit their opponents to a lot of pressure both on and off the field as the fans really get behind their team. They show continuous support as they always believe the team can pull an upset. Armenia already delivered a stunning surprise when they defeated Denmark by a four-goal margin, and they did it again as they got past the challenge of Bulgaria.
The visitors needed the three points to put themselves in a good position to take another step towards a possible World Cup qualification, but the road got steep when Minev was sent off for a hard foul on the verge of halftime. One minute later, Ozbiliz netted the opener for an Armenian side that, surprisingly, was leading at the break.
The experience of Bulgaria appeared in the second half, and they evened things up after a sensational strike from Popov. However, they suffered another dismissal when Dyakov saw another red card for the visiting team. The crowd noticed that it was the time to get louder to push their team forward, and Armenia were able to answer the fans with another shocking result.
Movsisyan found the back of the net near the end of the match, and Armenia got a shocking win. It’s a win that could now change the scenery in Group B after the Denmark-Italy match is played later today. Bulgaria, on the other hand, will need to wait until next week to heal their wounds as they will host Malta. Maybe the cheering of their fans can help them to get the positive result they might need.
