Notes

Tuesday, 15 October 2002 - Coach Nikola Ilievski received a welcome boost ahead of the match with England at St Mary's when striker Gorgji Hristov joined the squad for final preparations.  Hristov had intensive treatment with his Dutch club NEC Nijmegen before he was allowed to fly to England for the qualifier. Ilievski said: "Hristov is one of our most experienced players and he is important to us but how fit he is I do not know."

Monday, 7 October 2002 - Macedonia will be without key striker Gorgji Hristov when they take on England in their European championship qualifier on 16 October. Coach Nikola Ilievski said the Nijmegen player had not recovered completely from a recent injury. Hristov, who had a spell in English football with Barnsley, will only play in the first of their back-to-back qualifiers against Turkey at home on Saturday. "Nijmegen's doctor asked me to drop out Hristov from the tie with England," the coach said.

Sunday, 6 October 2002 - Nikola Ilievski has named a much-changed squad of 22 for the European championship qualifiers against Turkey and England following a number of withdrawals due to injury.  Angel Panov broke his nose in a recent league game, while fellow forwards Gorgji Hristov and Ilce Naumovski are rated doubtful. Other absentees include goalkeeper Gogo Jovcev, Toni Meglenski, Pance Cumbev and Danco Masev.  Ilievski has recalled NK Rijeka's Miroslav Vajs and Goran Pandev who both missed the Liechtenstein match while FK Partizan's Milan Stojanovski and Beograd's Filip Despotovski are also added to the squad. However, Ilievski has resisted turning to Brazilian-born Aguinaldo Braga who has failed to make an impact at Greek side FC Aris Thessaloniki.

Tuesday, 17 September 2002 - FYR Macedonia coach Nikola Ilievski has announced a 25-man squad for the upcoming European championship qualifiers against Turkey and England on 12 and 16 October.  After a disappointing 1-1 draw against Liechtenstein in the side's opening qualifier, Ilievski has left four players out of the squad -Goran Pandev, Ace Stojkov, Igor Nikolovski and Mile Krstev.
