Macedonia started the tournament with a 2:0 win against Saudi Arabia U16 team. The young Macedonians won the game much more difficult than we expected considering the fact that they were one year older than their opponents. Our team scored two goals in the second half through Emir Saitoski in the 62nd minute and Behar Feta in the 74th minute of the game.
In the other match Georgia defeated Azerbaijan with 2:0. Our next game is against Georgia on Sunday 24th of March with a kick-off at 15.30 CET.
