FYR Macedonia’s national football side has managed a nil nil draw against Australia in a friendly match played last night in Skopje. After wasting many chances, neither of the teams managed to score. This friendly fixture follows a defeat by the Macedonian side last weekend against Belarus in the framework of Euro 2016 qualifiers.

In the match against Australia, the coach of the national side offered a chance to many young players to play, however, he could not manage to secure a victory.

Djurovski, who has recently been a target of criticism, declared last night that he’s doing his job and that he was happy with the match against Australia. “Our boys showed that they know how to play football and showed a quality game against Australia, which is known as a strong side and which recently grabbed a draw against Germany”, declared Djurovski, stressing that the loss of Euro 2016 qualifying matches has to do with the fact that the national side is in the same group with strong teams. /ibna/
