Wednesday, 24 August 2011 - Thirty-man squad is announced by Lothar Matthäus for the upcoming European Championship qualification matches against England and Switzerland.

Monday, 29 August 2011 - Lothar Matthäus has named two uncapped players in his finalised 21-man squad for the Euro 2012 qualifiers at home to England on September 2 and away to Switzerland four days later. Chernomorets Burgas midfielder Tsvetomir Tsonkov and Cherno More striker Georgi Bozhilov could both make their debuts after impressing in the Bulgarian league.  Matthäus will have to cope without central defender Apostol Popov and midfielder Chavdar Yankov, both of whom are sidelined with long-term injuries.  Sporting Lisbon striker Valeri Bojinov has once again been left out with the 50-year-old German coach saying he needs to play more games after recovering from injury.  Experienced Premiership duo Stilian Petrov and Martin Petrov and Twente Enchede keeper Nikolay Mihaylov are back in the squad after missing the friendly game against Belarus this month.  Crystal Palace defender Alexander Tunchev returned to the squad for the first time since 2009 and there is also a place for Steaua Bucharest defender Valentin Iliev who has played just once in the last two years.  "England are one of the best teams in the world and it'll be a difficult game for us but I hope it'll be a difficult one for them too.  They'll be under pressure as they're the favourites and we're aiming to spring a surprise."  Matthäus told reporters.
