Montenegro, Lebanon announce squads

Macedonia’s opponents have revealed their rosters of summoned players for the two upcoming friendlies.

Igor Angelovski will make his managerial debut on November 12 against Montenegro in Skopje. As for the opponent, coach Branko Brnović called up 21 players and will add two more next week. This will be their only November friendly, but Montenegro comes with mostly their best squad. CB Esteban Saveljich (based in Argentina and there was no point to travel so far for just one friendly) and FW Dejan Damjanović (engaged in contract negotiations with his Chinese club) are the only key guys missing. It should be noted that although star player Mirko Vučinić planned to be dropped due to his suspension for the next qualifier, he insisted to be available for this friendly.
