Grozdanovski to travel to Tallinn
Friday, 28 May 2004
Vlatko Grozdanovski has been named in the F.Y.R. Macedonia squad to face Estonia on 11 June.

Back on board
The FK Vardar midfield player had been absent from coach Dragan Kanatlarovski's squads for several games, but was recalled for the fixture in Tallinn, which could be F.Y.R. Macedonia's final friendly game before the start of their 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

Previous meeting
The match will be the second meeting between the two teams, and the first to be staged on Estonian soil. The two sides went head-to-head in Skopje in 1994 with F.Y.R. Macedonia winning
2-0.

F.Y.R. Macedonia squad
Milosevski, Nikolovski, Sedloski, Igor Mitrevski, Cumbev, Popov, Vasovski, Bozinovski, Trajanov, Sumulikoski, Mustafi, Jancevski, Aleksandar Mitrevski, Sakiri, Grozdanovski, Cadikovski, Pandev, Dimitrovski, Toleski.

--------------------------

good to see him back... he was so great against england and turkey.

bad news : nikola noveski is injured so he won't play, U21 squad player Goran popov will replace him.
stojanoski and stavrevski have to find a new club.

this will be a tough game, they tied Denmark 2-2 today in Tallinn and they are a very good team. Most of their better players are defensive types (Poom, Oper, Piiroja). They are not the same team that they were a few years ago. (Croatia beat them 7-0 but in the recent qualifiers in the total of two games the score was 1-0)

What about Stojkov and Hristov?

Is Hristov's injury serious?
How is his relationship with the nat team coach? I know he was always a "difficult case".

Stojkov will play with the U21 squad cause he lacks competition; Inter Milan, its owner, loaned him to a poor Seria C squad Castel di Sangro (ridiculous! how could he improve there ?!). they should have done as for Pandev, loaning gim a Seria A club or to a good foreign club.

hristov has troubles with his knee : another operation for him this year which was successful. he won't play within 6 months at least.
he isn't a particularly undisciplined guy, he had troubles with former coach jovanovski because he hadn't respected a curfew for 15 minutes... but at this time there was less competition for the striker position in the senior NT. now things are different, and even though Hristov is still very talented and an important player for the squad, guys like Naumoski and Pandev - who are younger - are excellent players scouted by important clubs. behind them Cadikovski, Dimitrovski and Toleski are always players we can count on. but if i had to chosse between them i 'd put Hristov along with Pandev and Naumoski. These are our best players in attack. Baldovaliev, Grozdanovski and Stojkov who play for the U21 team are very good and promising but they're still young and lack experience.

yes DC it will be a tough game. Estonia is an excellent test for us before fighting in the WC2006 qualifiers against team like finland and romania which are on the same level i think. i don't know them that much but they seem to play in a counterattacking style of football helped by good defenders, with fast and technically gifted attackants like verpakovskis. In a way, they look like us.
i'd be curious to know how we look interesting to them.

Many absentees at the estonian side.

What a pity, that Hristov has a serious injury.
Thanks the detailed info about the young attackers.
What about Trajanov and Nacevski?

Trajanov is a versatile midfield player: he can play as a playmaker, a central midfielder or a right-wing midfielder. he's done a great season for lokomotiv plovdiv and his good games for the NT gave him credits.

Nacevski was a hot prospect, a U21 international, but didn't really confirm his potential. he's been apealed several times for the NT a few years ago and even score in an historical draw against turkey. this year, he didn't play a lot for his club.

3 new comers are currently training with the NT while preparating the match against Estonia in their training camp of Ohrid.

these are :

- Jesus Gilson, brazilian born midfield player of Pobeda who recently earned macedonian citizenship ;

- Mirsad Mijadinovski, swiss born player with macedonian citizen ship : he plays for Baden in the german 2nd division coming from Grasshoppers. he's 190 cm tall, 22 and plays in defense.

- Toni Markoski, player of Madzari.

they all train with the NT, it's an opportunity for Kanatlarovski to see their potential among the other 19 members of the squad who will fly to estonia. at this moment, there's no way we should see them in estonia.

and at last, good news ! Georgi Hristov is back ! he also trains with the Nt after his successful knee surgery.

the Nt parted in 2 groups of 11 players and played a test match before flying to Tallin which ended 2-1 for the "red " team.

red team : milosevski - bozinovski, popov, mitreski, sedloski - trajanov, mitreski, sakiri, sumulikoski - pandev, dimitrovski

yellow team : nikolovski - markoski, vasovski, kjumbev, mijadinovski - mustafi, grozdanovski, Gilson, jancevski - toleski, cadikovski.

score : 2-1 (jancevski 0-1 ; dimitrovski 1-1, sakiri 2-1)

the red team scored in the 2nd half, sakiri sealed his teammates victory 5 minutes before the final whistle.

the trainings showed Dimitrovski and Jancevski 's good shape.

the new comer and sparring partner Mijadinovski made an impressive start for the NT : he managed to injure both Sumulikoski (eye arcade) and Pandev (right leg) ! hopefully these injuries are slight...

hehe, I think UEFA is to blame for that.

As Tome (thepretender) is being discussed, I just want to applaud his effort with bringing in all of these new members to this forum. Great work and I hope all of you remain regulars here.
