Toshack opts for offensive minded formation

Toshack chose 4-3-3 formation; photo: experiencing with a 3-5-2 formation in training this week, manager John Toshack has settled on a 4-3-3 formation for the Armenia game.

Toshack will attempt to play attacking football in Armenia.  He announced the Macedonian lineup with three attackers in a 4-3-3 formation.  Martin Bogatinov beat out Tome Pacovski to get the nod at keeper.  The defense, from right to left, will feature Daniel Georgievski, Vance Sikov, Nikolce Noveski, and Goran Popov.  The three guys in midfield will be Velice Sumulikoski, Muhamed Demiri, and Muarem Muarem.  Meanwhile, in attack, Ivan Trickovski will be joined by Mirko and Filip Ivanovski to hopefully create havoc for the opposing defenders of Armenia.

Formation for Macedonia:
M. Ivanovski-F. Ivanovski-Trickovski

Bench: Tome Pacovski (backup keeper), Daniel Mojsov, Igor Mitreski, Aleksandar Lazevski, Vlade Lazarevski, Vlatko Grozdanoski, and Mario Gjurovski.

From the 20 men squad, two players could not make the final 18 so the two players who will watch the game from the stands are defensive midfielder Muhamed Huseini and left-back Robert Petrov.
