Irish press: Bozhinov injured

The Irish Independent:

BULGARIA have been plunged into further crisis ahead of Saturday's Croke Park date with Ireland after losing the two main alternatives to the absent Dimitar Berbatov.

Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov is out with a hamstring problem and has gone to Munich for treatment, while Hertha Berlin have refused to release Valeri Domovchiyski for duty on the basis that he was not called up in time under FIFA regulations.

And the Irish Times:

He can count himself lucky for Stoilov’s problems were mounting over the course of yesterday as the loss of Dimitar Berbatov was compounded by the near certain withdrawal of Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov and the refusal of Hertha Berlin to allow one of their frontmen, Valeri Domovchiyski, to join the squad because they had not been given the required notice.

If, as expected, Bojinov’s hamstring problem does rule him out then Stoilov will have only two strikers...
