Legendary "The Falcon" or in Bulgaria known also as "The Bulgarian George Best " is regarded in his country as the most talented bulgarian player ever. Fantastic technician whose career was destroyed by alcohol and other off-field circumstances. On the pitch he was a virtuoso, master of improvisation and fantastic dribbler but he wasn't lazy genius like many other similar players. In fact he run and fight like a crazy with enormous energy, madness, speed and physical strength. He was very precise passer and had powerful shot, hard as a rock, could handle the ball efficiently with both feet, flexible like a cat but extreme individualist, very selfish always tending to give spectacle to audience and therefore was a nightmare to his coaches with whom he often had clashes. Georgi Apostolov Sokolov was born on June 19, 1942 in the metropolitan area "Ivan Vazov". His father Apostol - Potso was in '25 at the time and became one of the best Bulgarian goalkeepers. He played for Spartak (Plovdiv) (1957-1958), Levski (Sofia) (1958-1969) and River (Montana) (1969/es. ). There are 194 games and 58 goals in group "A" (186 matches with 58 goals for Levski seven appearances for River and two appearances for Spartak (Plovdiv), which debuted 15 years and 5 months playing in Pleven). Twice champion of Bulgaria in 1965 and 1968 with Levski and triple winner of the Cup of the Soviet Army (1958 with Spartak (Plovdiv), 1959 and 1967 with Levski). Republican junior boys champion with Levski in 1960, led by Choria Petrov. There are 14 matches for "A" national team (1959-1965) 3 games by 1 goal to "B" and 11 national match with three goals in the youth team. In the spring of 1959 and Sokolov is one of the key figures in the youth national team of Bulgaria won the European championship tournament in Sofia. After this triumph Bob under the age 17 years, almost immediately established itself as a holder in Levski. National debut on May 13, 1959 in a 3-2 victory over the Netherlands in Sofia (16 years, 10 months and 27 days - the youngest player to play for the "A" team in history). His last game was on September 4, 1965 against East Germany (3-2). Participates in the SP-1962 in Chile (played in two games). For Levski 5 games and has one goal in European competition (3 games, 1 goal and 2 Cup appearances for ASC). Author's first goal for Levski in European tournaments - on September 12, 1965 in the 8th minute of the sixteenth Cup final stadium "Rosunda" Stockholm - Yurgorden - Levski 2:1. One of the biggest talents in Bulgarian football, which did not develop fully their properties. Georgi died in 2002.
