bulgaria-1-ireland-1 Giovanni Trapattoni’s side remain one point behind group leaders Italy and have effectively ruined Bulgaria’s chances of qualifying for next summer’s World Cup.

A goal from Richard Dunne gave Ireland a surprise lead in Sofia before Dimitar Telkiyski hit back for the hosts and that is how it stayed until the end.

In the build-up to the game, a lot was being made by Bulgarian media about the return of Dimitar Berbatov, but the Manchester United man never really got into the game despite displaying some nice touches.But Ireland were unable to hold on to the lead as Telkiyski drilled a low shot beyond Shay Given on 29 minutes after Kevin Kilbane and Sean St Ledger failed to deal with a long ball.

Dimitar Berbatov wasted a golden chance in the second half and Aiden McGeady flashed a late shot wide as Ireland moved to within a point of leaders Italy but, more importantly, stayed five points ahead of Bulgaria
