Newspapers are reporting that the popular Sedlo will be presented with the commemorative cap and medal by UEFA prior to tomorrow’s game between Macedonia and Slovakia to conclude the EURO 2012 qualifications.  11 October is also a holiday in Macedonia so the date will be special for Sedloski who was born in Prilep and made exactly 100 appearances for Macedonia.

During those 100 caps, Sedloski scored 8 goals despite being a defender.  The 37-year-old Sedloski retired from football a year ago and is currently an assistant coach for Austrian club Mattersburg.
