Young keeper Risto Jankov is for the first time summoned in the senior national team. Understandably, he is thrilled to be among the lads that will play at the EURO.
His good form for Rabotnichki and previously for the U21 national team earned Jankov a well deserved call among the best. He may be the fourth keeper on the list, but he definitely has the quality to make the other two reserve keepers fear for their places.
“Above all it is an honor and pleasure for me to be part of this team. I am thankful for the call. I will give everything so the team can prepare well in order to achieve good results. This national team has quality and showed that it can match anyone. I believe and I am convinced that we will succeed what we are striving for.” – said Jankov during Monday’s first training session.
Macedonia is getting ready for Thursday’s opening WC qualifier against Romania away. In June we will play for the first time at a EURO, while we still dream to take part at a World Cup.
“With reaching the EURO we showed our indisputable quality, but of course, we have a huge motivation to achieve another great historic success. I am sure the lads will give their best, match by match, we have to collect points against the best and also against the other teams.” – finished the 22-year-old keeper.
