Group D / Spain vs. Bulgaria

SITE: Lens.

TIME: Noon. TV: ESPN, Ch. 34.

* ABOUT SPAIN: Widely favored to win this group before the tournament, Spain has struggled and now needs help to make it to the second round.

* ABOUT BULGARIA: Has not scored in two games. Must get a victory today and hope Paraguay loses to have any hope of advancing.

* OUTLOOK: Spain always seems to qualify but not go far, and this tournament probably will not be any different. Bulgaria's defense has, surprisingly, played better than its offense.
