The head coach of the Macedonian A national team, Blagoja Milevski, gave an explanation at a press conference regarding the players called up for the matches of our best team against Finland (November 17, 6:00 p.m.) and Azerbaijan (November 20, 2:00 p.m.) on National Arena "Todor Proeski" in Skopje.

Blagoja Milevski - head coach of the Macedonian A national team:

"Unfortunately we are not complete again and we have been used for 14 months for various reasons to not be able to gather the best at one moment. Ademi is not with us again, in the last match for Dynamo he injured his hamstring. Churlinov, Kostadinov and Iliev are slowly coming back from injuries, but we don't have them for these matches. Velkovski is on the list and will be with us, but for 14 days he only does individual training. The shape of the football players is much better compared to September, first of all those who are constantly here, I mean Bardi, Elif, Alioski... in addition, those who were not at the Septembers gathering  are slowly getting into competitive shape, such as David Babunski and Boban Nikolov. Kire Ristevski had a period of acclimatization and is now at a satisfactory level. I hope that after the weekend, after the club matches, all the footballers will stay healthy."

"In these matches, I expect an improvement comparing with the matches in the League of Nations. However, these are the same guys who scored three or even five goals per game. Perhaps the poor form and problems of not finding teams were decisive and I hope that is now behind us. Finland is a great national team, a serious team with whom it will be difficult. Also, Azerbaijan is on the rise. These matches will serve us for our direction and direction for the future."
