“The summoned players will have the chance to show they are in their best form. I have selected players there are consisted in the U21 national team with three new players in Ivanov, Denkovski and Kackarovski, who I hope that with a hard labor in the trainings and good play in the games will seriously impose to the squad. Avramovski is back after the injury, while David Babunski will also be with us. I talked to him and whether he will play for the seniors against Slovakia or if he plays depending on the minutes spent of field, we will know how much we will be able to use him. He stated that he wants to be with us. Montenegro is a high quality team, maybe even better then Romania. It will be a tough game, but our goal is to match anyone.” – said Milevski for FFM’s web site.
