The captain of Bulgaria Georgi Kostadinov was taken out on a stretcher in the zero draw of his Arsenal Tula with Khimki from the Russian championship. The midfielder suffered a head injury in the 73rd minute after hitting an opponent. The injury will be received only 7 days before the world qualification with Lithuania, as the camp of the nationality or team starts tomorrow. In addition, there is no information about the interaction with Kostadinov and whether he will be able to play in the match.
