Damjan Shishkovski was not included in the matchday squad of Gent. Shishkovski was brought to Gent to mainly be the #3 keeper, so he’s not expected to see any time this season unless there are injuries.

Italy, Serie B, Latina – Vicenza 0:0
Stefan Ristovski played the entire game for Latina in the goalless draw against Vicenza.

Italy, Serie B, Spezia – Varese 1:1
Nikola Jakimovski was not among the 18 players called up by Varese. There were still documentation issues that needed to be sorted out, but Jakimovski should be available for the next game (if the coach decides to call him up).

Netherlands, Eredivisie, Zwolle – NAC Breda 4:1
Aleksandar Damchevski did not make the matchday squad of NAC Breda due to an injury. As for his teammate Uros Matic, we will include him on these reports once it becomes official that he will represent Macedonia.

Babunski will soon turn 21 and finds himself in a tricky situation considering that Barcelona has been given a transfer ban for this whole year. The only way David can leave the club during 2015 is if they release him (they are still allowed to do that under the terms of their ban).
