FFM confirmed today that Latvia will be Macedonia’s opponent for a 5 March friendly that will mark the debut of new manager Boshko Gjurovski.
Boshko Gjurovski will debut at home as a manager when Macedonia hosts Latvia in a friendly on 5 March in Skopje, the Football Federation of Macedonia (FF) confirmed today on their website.
Gjurovski released the following statement, “The match against Latvia will be unique, I will make my debut as the manager and I am already feeling positive. I hope that our fans will come to the stadium in order to give us support. Until the March encounter, we have some time so the details around the player selections will be known in the upcoming period. I think that it will be a good match, Latvia is a quality national team and their ranking on the FIFA list does not reflect their true potential This will be a good test and a great opportunity to learn about the quality and potential of the footballers who will get a chance on our national team.”
This will be the first matchup between Macedonia and Latvia, currently ranked at #116 on the FIFA World Rankings. Meanwhile, Macedonia finds itself in the 83rd position.
