Dear Kanatlarovski, head coach of the Macedonian U21 national team:
- "After the control matches against Albania and Saudi Arabia that were played in Croatia,we expect two more matches against quality opponents. The test matches against Cyprus and Serbia are a good opportunity to get an insight into the current form of the national team called up. I hope that we will continue the trend of achieving positive results, and this will further raise our confidence before the start of the qualifications.
- There are almost no changes in the list of called football players compared to our previous matches. We are facing objective problems related to the small club minutes of certain important footballers in the lineup, but playing for the national team is something special and I hope that those same players will give their best and show themselves in the right light in the upcoming matches. I am convinced that we have quality, but we must have the right approach in every game, determined in the goal we want to achieve and of course with a great desire to win."
