Τhe match reports in the above clippings of 4 hellenic newspapers and from a 5th one, "ΑΘΛΗΤΙΣΜΟΣ της Ελλάδος" (=Athletism of Hellas) in 22 and 25.05.1936, seem to agree to the following:

0:1 (13.) Antonis Migiakis, shot
1:1 (28.) Asen Peshev, shot
2:1 (30.) Penko Rafailov, fierce shot
3:1 (33.) Liubomir Angelov, foul shot
3:2 (70.) Kleanthis Vikelidis, shot (or Houmis in 2 out of 5 sources)
4:2 (74.) Mihail Lozanov, shot (or Peshev in 1 out of 4 sources)
5:2 (78.) Asen Panchev
5:3 (87.) Kostas Houmis (in all sources!)
5:4 (89.) Kostas Houmis, header.

The mistake of presenting Giannis Vazos as scorer of the 5:3 goal, is also found in Hellenic Football Federation’s site (link: ) and is repeated in RSSSF (link: ) , but newspapers in 1936 leave no doubt.

Two sources confirm a 20,000 attendance, but "ΑΘΛΗΤΙΣΜΟΣ της Ελλάδος" reports in 2 different times Liubomir Angelov as captain, not Peshev (although its reliability on Bulgaria NT data is questioned).

Translation in English of the 5:4 goal photo legend:
"Houmis, miraculous during the match Bulgaria-Hellas in Bucureşti, is in the air for a header and Dermonski battles desperately to save his goal, but with no success."
"ΑΘΛΗΤΙΣΜΟΣ της Ελλάδος", 22.05.1936 (digital page nr 173) (link: )

With Hellas NT 1-3 down, Theologos Simeonidis had a penalty kick sent out in 58.
