After the Nations League draw national team coach Igor Angelovski gave his first statement about the Group 4 opponents. He was present at the draw in the Swiss city of Lausanne was rather pleased after Macedonia was placed in group with outsiders Liechtenstein and Gibraltar plus Armenia, a team that Angelovski earlier said that would like to avoid.
“Our goal is the first place, we will play in order to top the group. The encounters with Armenia will be decisive, no we also must be well prepared and highly motivated against Liechtenstein and Gibraltar. I will analyze all of our opponents, but still, it must be clear to everyone that it will be up to us, we have to give our best.”
Angelovski has a positive record against Liechtenstein as Macedonia beat them twice in the qualifications for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
“I hope that the players will be in good health in order to focus ourselves only to the competition. I believe in the quality of our players because they have already shown that they can match far better national teams. We must have the support of everyone in order to succeed, our Macedonia deserves that.”
