Cyprus fall to Bulgaria in Sofia (video)

Cyprus suffer second defeat in the UEFA Nations League.

It was a night which started so well for Cyprus who took the lead against the hosts Bulgaria, Grigoris Kastanos got on the scoresheet and it looked like Cyprus would at last take a positive result from Sofia.

However the Bulgarians reacted and equalised with Kiril Despodov with a thumping header.

Bulgaria managed to turn the game around in the 68th minute with Todor Nedelev and at that point the hosts had complete control of the game.

The match ended 2-1 and that means that Cyprus are in third place in group 3 with 3 points Bulgaria have 9 points and Norway have 6 points, Slovenia are bottom of the group with no points in the group.

Here are the highlights from Saturday’s game:
