At least one player was seriously injured when Bulgaria’s national soccer team was involved in a bus crash in the Caucasus republic of Georgia.
The Bulgarian Football Union (BFU) said on June 11 that two coaches transporting the team from the airport in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, crashed into each other when "the driver of the first of the two buses carrying our team lost control of the vehicle." Todor Nedelev, 29, suffered a "craniocerebral trauma" and was taken to a hospital for treatment. The BFU said Nedelev -- who plays for Bulgarian club Botev Plovdiv -- had been "successfully" operated on and that it would give further updates on his condition when available. The soccer federation said there were no other injuries among squad members. Georgia and Bulgaria are scheduled to play a UEFA Nations League match on June 12. UEFA said that “following discussions with both teams, it has been agreed to play the match as scheduled.”
