U21 squad revealed for upcoming qualifiers

The U21s on training; photo: FFMU21 national team coach Blagoja Milevski summoned 20 players for the EURO qualifiers against Iceland and France.

Milevski faced many problems as some of the regulars players are injured, suspended or lack playing time in their teams. Left back Mevlan Murati is suspended for the first game, but is on the list because he is available for the second.

The biggest issue was the position between the posts. Aleksovski is injured but showed signs of recovery so eventually he made the list. Dejan Iliev of Arsenal is out with an injury, while Davor Taleski is suspended by the Federation as he is one of the Metalurg players. Shishkovski is a second choice at Rabotnichki, but was summoned.

Back in the team is attacker Filip Pivkovski who got the chance over Dorian Babunski. Both lack playing time in their clubs.

Here is the complete list:

Igor Aleksovski – Makedonija GjP Macedonia
