Macedonia’s coach Zvonko Sundovski has given the shortened list of players that are travelling to Portugal for the match on Sunday against the host for the European Championship 2014 in Denmark. Borko Ristovski is back in the team after the suspension, and after a brilliant game in Skopje against Switzerland, Nikola Mitrevski is going to Portugal, which means that Petar Angelov stays in Skopje, who already has small injury problems. Stevche Alushevski and Goce Georgievski are the other two that stay in Skopje, while Goce Ojlevski and Zlatko Mojsovski will be replacing them in the team. Macedonia beat Switzerland in the first round of the qualifications with 30:24, while Portugal lost away in Spain with 20:34, and a defeat in this game might mean end of chances for the Portuguese for eventual qualification, while for Macedonia it shall mean definite qualification.
Fans wonder on leaving out Georgievski?!
One of the most in-form players of HC Metalurg, and who has been brilliant so far in the SEHA league and especially in the Champions League, Goce Georgievski has been left out of the squad, while Zlatko Mojsovski has been taken in. Fans justly question the choice where Temelkov and Mojsovski with 31 and 32 years respectively are taken in the team, while a magnificent in-form promising winger like 25-year old Georgievski has been left out.
