Angelovski summoned 23 players and made four changes from the last qualifiers against Poland and Austria. Stefan Ristovski who is injured, and Ferhan Hasani who is without a club, have both been left out for the upcoming encounters. Furthermore, Darko Churlinov has been released to play for the U21 qualifier against the Faroe Islands, whereas Kristijan Toshevski has not been summoned this time.
The spots of these four have been replaced with returnees Stefan Spirovski and Ivan Trichkovski who have came back from their injuries, as well as striker Vlatko Stojanovski who is a new name in the national team after being the top scorer in the PMFL last season and after making a transfer to French club Nîmes this summer. Finally, Ljupcho Doriev from Akademija Pandev has also returned to the national team after 2 years since his debut and last call up.
During the press, Angelovski stated that he will be looking to score at least 3 points from these two encounters.
