It will not be easy for Macedonians in the group with the Netherlands, Ukraine, and Austria. However, Igor Angelovski’s team will do their best to first travel to the European Championship in a good mood, and then try to prepare a bigger surprise there. That is why it is important today in their last preparatory match, with Kazakhstan in Skopje, to achieve the best possible result. Kazakhstan is almost entirely with players from the local championship, and only two football players among those invited come from foreign clubs. Among them is striker Alexei Shchetkin, who plays for Russian Rotor Volgograd, and there is also a member of the Belarusian Energetik, Ruslan Valijulin. The list also includes several experienced players, such as strikers Tanat Nuserbayev, Gafurzhan Suyumbayev, and Bauyrzhan Bajtana. The coach of Macedonia announced that the duel against the Kazakhs will be a chance for those with fewer minutes, in order to impose themselves before the European Championship, and Enis Bardhi, who is infected with the coronavirus is certainly out of the team. Also, Ferhan Hasani suffered a nose injury in a friendly match with Slovenia (1:1) and will most likely not play. Kazakhstan is an enigma for the Macedonians and this is the first mutual duel for these two teams, but I think that Macedonia is a far better team that needs to come to a victory in order to raise self-confidence.
