Bulgaria to Face Ukraine in Football Friendly
Bulgaria's national football team is to face Ukraine on Wednesday in its last friendly game for 2012.

The Bulgarians had an impressive start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, holding Italy to a 2:2 draw and defeating Armenia 1:0 in September in Sofia. The Balkan underdogs then proceeded to hold Denmark and the Czech Republic to two consecutive draws in October.
Ukraine are second from bottom in 2014 World Cup qualifying Group H with two points from three games.
The strong Ukrainian side will be without three of its key players in Sofia. Yevhen Konoplyanka, Oleg Husyev and Andriy Yarmolenko will miss the game due to injuries.
