Armenia got defeated 2:0 in Skopje in September and changed the head coach later. Vardan Minasyan was substituted with Armen Gyulbudaghyants who was announced just few days ago. The former manager of Pyunik, Alashkert, Impulse and Banats decided to call up 26 players making 9 changes from the squad that lost at Philip II Arena. Back in the team is the former Vardar wing back Hambardzumyan who did not play in Skopje due to injury. He also brought back experienced striker Yura Movsisyan from the MLS and included talented U21 midfielder Petros Avetisyan who last month scored a brace and assisted in the U21 qualifier in Skopje. Another debutante from that youth game is defender Artur Kartashyan.
