Angelovski did summon 23 players, but the many injuries are giving him a headache. Velkovski, Alioski, Ademi, Markoski, Nestorovski and Trajkovski are all problematic as they are currently sidelined of just have been recovered. Stefan Spirovski and Ivan Trichkovski are not in the squad at all. Stefan has been injured for a while, while Ivan recently picked up an injury. Time will tell if someone else will be forced to withdraw from the squad.

Back in the team are Ademi, who missed the opening matches in March, and Radeski who was injured since last summer and hasn’t been in the national team for a year.
