SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) -Ten-man Bulgaria was held to a 1-1 draw by visiting Denmark in their qualifying match for the 2014 World Cup on Friday.

Dimitar Rangelov put Bulgaria ahead in the seventh minute, heading the ball past goalkeeper Stephan Andersen after a cross from Ivan Bandalovski.

The home team kept pressing in an attempt to extend its advantage, but was seriously weakened when right back Ivan Bandalovski was shown a straight red card in the 25th minute for a professional foul.

The equalizer came in the 40th minute, when Nicklas Bendtner took a pass from Michael Krohn-Dehli and found the back of the net with a header from inside the box.

Bulgaria is second in Group B with five points, two behind group leader Italy. Denmark has two points in two games.
