Despite that defender Nikolce Noveski scored a goal for Mainz, the 1.Bundesliga pretenders lost the derby of the 2.Bundesliga with the current table leader Freiburg. The same story happened in the Czech Republic where Riste Naumov scored in his team’s defeat. The match of the weekend for the Macedonian internationals was played in South Korea
Five internationals scored this Friday and Saturday. Starting with Goran Pandev who scored the first goal in Lazio’s win over Roma in the derby della capitale. Ilco Naumoski scored for Mattersburg in a very important win, but got an injury. Filip Ivanovski scored again in Poland for Polonia, Zoran Zlatkovski scored for Vihren in Bulgaria,
Kemal Alomerovik scored one of the two goals in his team’s victory in Hungary, Filip Ivanovski brought the win to his team in Poland, Boban Grncarov also scored but failed to win in Israel, while Velice Sumulikoski played his first game for Ipswich after a long absence.
Nikolce Noveski with his Mainz is heading good for the promotion to the 1.Bundesliga, Petar Milosevski didn't had much work as his team won 4:0, Vance Sikov and Sasa Ognenovski lost, while all the others who played this weekend draw with their teams.
Adelaide United’s 29-years-old defender, Sasa Ognenovski, will play for Macedonia. FFM contacted him and he officially accepted the offer to wear the red top. He will make his debut on the friendly match against Moldova next month.
First weekend in the New Year and five Macedonian internationals were active. Velice Sumulikoski advanced into the next round of the FA Cup with Ipswich, Sasa Ognenovski maintained with the winning in the far Australia, Jovan Kostovski again came in as a sub for OFI, while Sikov and Milosevski are still searching for a win
Five Macedonian internationals played on the last weekend of the year 2008. Velice Sumulikoski, Goran Popov and Sasa Ognenovski have won with their teams, all three away, while Vance Sikov and Petar Milosevski both lost with their Cypriot teams.
Because FIFA’s rules do not apply for the Macedonian football federation as they wanted to give Macedonian passports to foreign players Washington and Osa, we are suggesting that FFM should also try and get Amauri, Almunia, Streit etc in the Macedonian national team.
Sasa Ognenovski and his team are eliminated from the Club World Cup in Japan, Goran Pandev had a good match and helped Lazio to come back from three goals down, Goran Popov continues with the good form in Holland, while Mattersburg is sinking in Austria along with Sedloski and Naumoski.
Only a few internationals played this weekend as many of the leagues around Europe are on a winter break. Boban Grncarov managed to score two goals, an own goal and a regular goal. Goran Pandev and Nikolce Noveski got injuries, while Zlatko Tanevski went on a winter break as a table leader in Poland.
