Macedonian national team coach Igor Angelovski revealed his squad list for the upcoming 2020 EURO qualifying matches against Slovenia and Poland.

The first match against Slovenia will be crucial for us since we must take the three points in order to stay in battle for the second place. For that occasion Angelovski summoned 23 players. Enis Bardhi was on the list but as he is out injured on Sunday he was dropped with 24-year-old midfielder Gjorgi Stoilov getting his first call taking Bardhi’s place. Additionally Angelovski summoned 19-year-old central defender Mario Mladenovski who just yesterday had his league debut for Vardar away to Shkendija. Definitely a huge surprise by the coach.
Keep in mind that Bejtulai must serve a yellow card suspension against Slovenia so he will only be available for the second match in Poland.
