The Macedonian national football team will play against Croatia on June 3 from 19:00 in Rijeka, while seven days later in Hradec Kralove we will face the Czech Republic in the second friendly match.

The selector Blagoja Milevski announced the roster for these two matches and said that they will be important in preparing the team for the challenges of September.

"We are looking forward to the new meeting and strong matches against Croatia and the Czech Republic, two national teams participating in the European Championship.

The Macedonian national team includes football players who have confirmed that they can compete with the strongest European teams. We remain loyal to the players who played great matches in the second part of the qualifiers for the European Championship, especially against the big favourites, England and Italy. Regardless of the form or the status in the clubs, they will be here for our main goal – the League of Nations and the calculations that await us from September.

Darko Velkovski is with us, who is in the final stages of recovery from an injury, but regardless of whether he will be able to play, it is important that as one of the most experienced in the team and one of the leaders of the team, he is part of this gathering.

The two control matches in Rijeka against Croatia and Hradec Kralove against the Czech Republic are important for us in the preparations for the September challenges, with a special emphasis on strengthening the good atmosphere and togetherness.

We also have to fix some things in the game if we want to see a positive result in the next two matches. We have to do better, I'm aware of that. We create chances, but we have to improve efficiency, get into empty space more, show character. "These are matches in which there will certainly not be a lack of motivation, and we need to enter seriously, responsibly and firmly," said Milevski.
