Milevski summoned 27 players, but the very next day Churlinov withdrew because of injury. So far no replacement has been called up.

There is one debutante in defensive midfielder Agon Elezi who plays in Croatia. He is 21-year-old and so far features in the Macedonian youth national teams.

After 5 years of absence due to injuries back in the team the #1 keeper of the team that participated at the U21 EURO 2017 in Poland, Igor Aleksovski. Despite being glad that he is finally back in the NT, we have to put the question where is David Mitov Nilsson who is regular in the Swedish league.

Several players are missing from the list, but here we have to agree with Milevski. Boban Nikolov, Kire Ristevski and David Babunski are without clubs this summer, while Erdal Rakip is injured, again. Ilija Nestorovski plays for Udinese, but only enters from the bench, so Milevski decided not to summon him. Tomche Grozdanovski is also playing very little, while keeper Dejan Iliev is injured.
