Our players had a very disappointing results. They lost all three games in a group stage against Albania, South Korea and Ukraine and they were also defeated in the match for the 7th place against Kosovo. These aren’t good news for the Coach Dragan Kanatlarovski and our football federation because this national team will took part in the U17 EURO qualifiers this autumn.

Unfortunately we couldn’t find any information at all about this tournament on the FFM’s web site. Turkey beat South Korea 2:1 in the final match and won the tournament.
