Angelovski summoned only 18 players for the upcoming Nations League matches against Gibraltar and Armenia. Among then is Arijan Ademi who yesterday got an injury while playing fir his Dinamo in the Champions League play-off. Also, Darko Velkovski has been injured for the whole summer, but he trains and he may be playable.
Both keepers Dimitrievski and Nilsson haven’t played for their clubs as the first wants to make a transfer while the later is a bench warmer.
Returnees after a while are left back Mite Cikarski and Egzon Bejtulai whose natural position is right back but can be suitable replacement at central defense.
Stole Dimitrevski – Gimnástic
David Mitov Nilsson – Norrköping
Stefan Ristovski – Sporting
Kire Ristevski – Vasas
Darko Velkovski – Rijeka
Visar Musliu – Shkendija
