Agron Bufi, one of the more notable players during the team’s preparation is not among the invited players. Aleksandar Trajkovski, Inter Zapresic’s amazing young player, who was guest player for Chelsea this May, has not been called to the team. After Trajkovski turned 18, he is regular for the Croatian team. However, Boceski did not find it suitable to invite him, but there was room for Dino Dzaferoski. Although this player plays in Westfalia Wickede in the 6th German League where his team is only 15th or is battling to avoid relegation, Dzaferoski will be part of the national team.
