Football is clearly the number one sport in Bulgaria. The greatest success for Bulgarian football in recent years was the fourth-place finish at the 1994 FIFA World Cup? in the USA. Bulgaria also won the International Youth Tournament (U-19) in 1959, 1969 and 1974, secured the Bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Melbourne in 1956, and went one better 12 years later in Mexico City, when the team took home the Silver medal. Hristo Stoitchkov (Barcelona, Parma, etc), Krasimir Balakov (Sporting Lisbon, VfB Stuttgart), Luboslav Penev (various Spanish clubs), Marian Hristov (1. FC Kaiserslautern) and Georgi Aspauhov (Levski Sofia) are just a few of the names who have made Bulgarian football famous.
UEFA World Cup Qualifiers
The Union of European Football Associations, almost always referred to by its acronym UEFA is the administrative and controlling body for European association football, futsal and beach soccer. UEFA represents most of the national football associations of Europe, runs national and club competitions in its area, and controls the prize money, regulations and media rights to those competitions. Due to the disputed boundary of Europe and Asia transcontinental nations such as Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, and Russia, are members of the UEFA rather than AFC, as are Israel and Cyprus which lie entirely in Asia.
