The Macedonian women’s national team suffered another heavy loss, this time losing 8:0 against Russia.

In another game of the women’s EURO 2013 qualifiers, Macedonia suffered one more convincing defeat by losing 8:0 to Russia.  It was 2:0 at halftime before the Russian women added six more goals after the break.  FFM announced a new manager for the women’s national team, hoping that it will lead to better results, but the debut for the new manager resulted in another heavy defeat.

Remained on the bench:  Kostova, Salihi, Dimkoska, Mitrevska.

With the loss, the Macedonian women’s national team stayed in last place of Group 1 with only one point after five games.  The goal difference now stands at -24 in those games. 

The Macedonian women next play Greece on the road on 4 April.  The women’s national team picked up its only point in qualifying when they drew 1:1 against Greece at home on 26 October 2011.
