Slovakia coach Ladislav Jurkemik is looking to the future against F.Y.R. Macedonia after his team failed to qualify for UEFA EURO 2004™.
Chance to shine
The Slovakians welcome their Group 7 rivals to Zilina next Wednesday with both teams knowing the best finish they can achieve is third place behind Turkey and England. As such Jurkemik is determined to give a chance to his less experienced players in this match and the final qualifier in Liechtenstein on 11 October.
"One era is over, another begins," said Jurkemik. "As it is vital to try and stay among the third seeds for future events, we are obliged to win our last home game. I will give a chance to players I, or somebody else, can rely upon in the future."
