No more mistakes for Bulgaria

Vladimir Nikolov is nightmare for Japan but he is injured and will miss the matches this weekend
 At least 9 point out of 4 matches in the minimum bid that Bulgaria is going to stake over the visits of Japan and Germany. That is what coach Radostin Stoychev and captain Vladimir Nikolov declared yesterday. After making mistakes with Germany - twice, and being run over by Russia, now Lions have to rise all of their strenght to qualify for World League finals.
This may be a hard job to do while team is injury epidemic. Most of his main players are in the hands of Doctor Zahariev but not their coaches. Thus what World Club Champion Stoychev wants is pretty much exhausting for his players.
"We have done our bad matches. It was a success for us winning 4 points in Germany and coming back without more injured. Now we look forward and if we can have the winning spirit - we will defeat Russia and Japan", Stoychev said.
On the other pole is the Japan's coach Tatsuya Ueta. He is calm after not seeing Bulgaria captain Vladimir Nikolov against his team this weekend. Ueta is satisfied with his players after beating Germany. Japan has the self-esteam now and we know how to give hard time for Bulgaria. We are far away from victory but it will be honour for us to beat Bulgaria at their home court, from Japanese team declared.
