The national coach of North Macedonia – Blagoja Milevski, has determined the composition for the final two matches in the League of Nations tournament, one of which is against Bulgaria.

Our neighbors will first have to visit Georgia on September 23, while three days later they welcome the home national team in Skopje. Unlike us, the Macedonians still have their chances for the first place in the group, but they are going through two must-wins in the group.

Georgia is the leader with 10 points, North Macedonia has 7, but our neighbors lost the direct clash in Skopje with 0:3. This means that apart from a victory, the Macedonians should look for an expressive one, because even if they equalize on points, the Georgians have the advantage in head-to-head matches and are unlikely to make a mistake in their last match against Gibraltar.

Even the chances of the Macedonians for the first place will end in Tbilisi, but Bulgaria’s visit to Skopje will by no means be an insignificant match for them. Our neighbors have been looking forward to this match for several months now, and like the first match, they are convinced that they will defeat us. However, then the meeting ended in a 1:1 draw.

Unlike the native coach Mladen Krastaic, who decided to rejuvenate the national team with many new names, Blagoja Milevski is betting on his best available players.

In the ranks of North Macedonia are all the most experienced players, and the average number of matches for the national team is 25.6. For comparison, in Bulgaria’s called up players have an average number of 5.9 matches.

In the composition are the big stars Elif Elmas from Napoli and Ariane Ademi from Dinamo (Zagreb), and the only debutant is the 21-year-old Agon Elezi from the Croatian Varaždin.

The team also features the names of four players who have passed through their home fields. These are the goalkeeper Kristijan Naumovski, who has 5 games for Levski, as well as the defender Gjoko Zaikov, who last campaign played one half-season each in Levski and Slavia.

There is Stefan Ashkovski, who also played with the Slavia team, as well as the former striker of Botev (Vratsa) – Dorian Babunski.
