The European qualifier was special for Macedonian #1 Stole Dimitrievski. For the 60th time he wore the keeper’s top with the national emblem and became the most capped keeper for his country.

To achieve this he had to pass legendary keeper Petar Miloshevski. Miloshevski could not witness Stole’s achievement – earlier this month was the 7 anniversary of his tragic death. But as humble he was, we are sure that he would have been very happy for Stole. And maybe he is, watching us from beyond.

“He encouraged, initiated, united. He was special. A special person. Tonight I defended the goal at my 60th match for the Macedonian national team. Honestly, I am happy for this achievement, but deep inside I will always remember the 59 matches with Petar between the posts. Eternal glory to you, our Pece. Tonight we all played for you as well” – said Dimitrievski after the match.

Miloshevski has one more appearance, but it is a non official match against Spanish province of Basque Country.
