"Bogomil Levski breaks through the Brazilian defence and equalises! Ten all!"
-- match report Brazil v Bulgaria final, Daily Prophet, 11 July 2014 (Pm)
- They had quite an easy first match against New Zealand. The collision of Levski and NZ Chaser Dennis Moon caused the latter to be sent off - even though the two had previous history (Pm).
- Their second match for the quarter-finals was very short - only 42 minutes against Norway - and Seeker Viktor Krum's early catch of the Snitch made the winning total 170 points to Norway's 20 (Pm).
- They won their semi-final match against Japan - by a hard-fought 610 points to 460 (Pm).
- Bulgaria were the winners of the tournament, beating Brazil by 170 points to 60. Levski made some crucial interceptions of the Quaffle and also scored during the match (Pm).
