Vlade Lazarevski will not travel to China for the friendly game and Perica Stanceski will take his place in the national team.
Lazarevski told national team coach Mirsad Jonuz that he won’t be able to play in this game so the coach called Perica Stanceski instead who will have his debut in the national team. Stanceski is 25 years old full back and have played for the U21 national team before. Born in Belgrade, Serbia, he has never played in the Macedonian First League. He started his career as a youth in Partizan and spent many years in the Serbian Super and First league. Today he is owned by Čukarički but plays for Bosnian side Borac from Banja Luka as loaned player.
Macedonia will face China away on the 22nd this month in the city of Fóshān.
