Walcott said: “I was aware of it but I will let the FA deal with that…it was very clear” while the FA added: “We have raised the matter with the Bulgarian FA and the Uefa match delegate.” England captain John Terry said he was shocked by what he heard. “You don’t expect that at all,” he said. Terry added that he hoped the incident would not overshadow what was a good performance from a rejuvenated England. There were also accusations that Bulgarian supporters were making Nazi salutes during the match in front of the 3,000 travelling England supporters. Bulgaria’s national coach at the time, German Lothar Matthaeus, apologised after the match. Mihaylov said on Thursday that Bulgaria would seek a postponement of the hearing in order to prepare their defence.
