Armenia lose at home but play well in away games – Armenian two-time Olympic wrestling champion

Armenia might lose by a score of 0-1, but the match could also end in a 0-0 or a 1-1 tie, stated Armen Nazaryan. Nazaryan is Armenian two-time Olympic, three-time world, and six-time European champion in Greco-Roman wrestling, and the current head coach of the Bulgarian national Greco-Roman wrestling team. He spoke about the forthcoming 2014 World Cup football qualifier match between Armenia and Bulgaria.

“Bulgaria have more chances to win. Besides, Armenia lose at home but play well in away games. Just as we will fight on the [wrestling] mat, I hope the Bulgarian national team will do everything to win in Yerevan,” Sportal.bg quotes Nazaryan as saying.

To note, the Brazil 2014 qualifiers’ return-leg match between Armenia and Bulgaria will be held Friday in Armenia’s capital city Yerevan.  After eight rounds in the World Cup qualifiers Group B, Italy have already booked their spot at Brazil 2014, with 20 points, Bulgaria have 13 points, Denmark have 12 points, Armenia and the Czech Republic have 9 points, apiece, and Malta have 3 points.
