90'James Milner. The midfielder picks up a booking late on for a foul on Milanov.
89'The hat-trick hero is named as the Man of the Match.
87'Off, Jermain Defoe. On, Ashley Young. It is to be Defoe's last action of the match, though, as an injury he picked up in scoring the goal has forced him off. The Villa wide man comes on in his place.
86'Jermain Defoe. And there is the hat-trick! Rooney bursts through the middle and slips a through ball to Defoe who rifles home his third and England's fourth.
83'Adam Johnson. It didn't take the substitute long to find his range. He collected the ball on the edge of the area, shimmied and deceived Veselin Minev and slammed home England's third goal of the night.
82'In his eagerness to grab a hat-trick, Defoe fires a 20-yard shot over the bar.
81'Substitute Adam Johnson tries to curl a left-foot shot into the far corner but he can't quite apply enough bend on the ball.
79'Off, Ivelin Popov. On, Georgi Peev.
76'Excellent double save from the Bulgarian stopper. First he parries Gerrard's long-range pearler and then claws the ball away from the lurking Defoe.
74'Off, Theo Walcott. On, Adam Johnson.
68'Gerrard calls Mihaylov into action once more with a snap shot after Milanov charges into Milner by the corner flag.
67'Off, Stanislav Manolev. On, Veselin Minev.
65'Another great save from Hart, this time from Rangelov. The substitute picked up a loose ball in the box - after a Martin Petrov cross was cut out - but his effort was blocked by Hart's strong forearm. Pacy rebound diverted over the bar by Cahill.
63'Off, Valeri Bozhinov. On, Dimitar Rangelov.
62'Ivelin Popov. The Bulgarian is booked for a trip on Milner.
61'Jermain Defoe. Action at both ends. Less than a minute after Hart palms away Stanislav Angelov's effort, England break at speed, Rooney finds Defoe and the Tottenham man plants the ball underneath Mihaylov for the second.
59'With play re-started, Glen Johnson skews a left-foot shot harmlessly high and wide of the Bulgarian goal.
57'Off, Michael Dawson. On, Gary Cahill. Dawson catches his studs in the turf, falls awkwardly and suffers a horrible looking injury, forcing Fabio Capello into the first change of the match. Gary Cahill comes on for his England debut.
52'Dawson mis-judges a header which allows Bojinov to feed Ivelin Popov but his shot across Hart flashes just wide.
50'An impudent chip from Rooney gets the crowd off their feet but Mihaylov does well to palm it over the bar. The crowd are in good voice again.
46'Defoe and Rooney get this second half up and running with neither side having made any changes at the break.
41'Another shot from Milner, this time from the left side of the box, is deflected behind for another corner - which results in the Bulgarian 'keeper getting injured in a collision with Defoe.
38'A marauding run from Milner finds the ball exchanged between himself, Defoe, Rooney, Gerrard and, finally, Walcott but the winger's cross is comfortably claimed by Mihaylov.
31'Some tidy footwork from Walcott gives him half a yard of space to dig out a cross-cum-shot which Mihaylov is forced to turn behind for a corner.
29'James Milner registers a shot on target with his left foot but Mihaylov is behind it all the way.
23'A well-timed sliding interception from Phil Jagielka prevents Valeri Bojinov from troubling Hart with an effort on goal.
20'A heart-in-the-mouth moment there for Glen Johnson as his attempted clearance of Chavdar Yankov's cross zips goalwards, but Hart is down well to spare the full-back's blushes.
18'Walcott has just treated us to another exhibition of his renowned pace, but his pull-back is cut out before it finds Rooney.
10'Joe Hart gets his first touch of the ball as Phil Jagielka heads back Iliyan Stoyanov's long ball forward.
07'This is a very bright start from the Three Lions. Rooney and Cole look sharp, Steven Gerrard is his usual domineering self and Walcott has just driven a low shot narrowly wide.
03'Jermain Defoe. A cracking start from England! Good work from Wayne Rooney slips in Ashley Cole, whose initial effort is blocked by Nikolay Mihaylov, but he feeds the rebound across goal for Defoe to turn home.
