Barely time to break into a sweat

A match in the Bulgarian third division was scrapped after just four minutes when a team ran out of players. Injury and suspension-hit Gigant Belene started their clash against Chavdar Byala Slatina on Sunday with just eight players.

If they already faced an uphill battle, their task got a lot harder when they picked up two more injuries in the opening minutes of the game. The referee was forced to call off the game as Gigant only had six players available.

Visiting Chavdar were awarded a 3-0 victory, but Gigant were able to console themselves with the fact they they have a fantastic logo.
