Second chance for Armenia absentees

Roman Berezovsky and Robert Zebelyan have returned to an extended Armenia squad for the upcoming UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying game against Finland.

Roman Berezovsky and Robert Zebelyan have returned to an extended Armenia squad for the UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier against Finland.

Second chance
Goalkeeper Berezovsky and striker Zebelyan refused call-ups for last month's home game against Finland due to club commitments, but have been given another chance for the trip to Helsinki on 15 November. Ecuador-based Khose Bilibio has been left out by coach Ian Porterfield for disciplinary reasons however, while centre-half Robert Arzumanyan misses out through suspension. Brothers Arman and Artavazd Karamyan are doubtful as visa problems may affect their travel.

Goalkeepers: Roman Berezovsky (FC Khimki), Gevorg Kasparov (FC Pyunik), Feliks Hakobyan (FC MIKA), Armando Hambartsumyan (PFC Slavia Sofia), Edel Bete (AFC Rapid Bucuresti).

Defenders: Karen Dokhoyan (FC Krylya Sovetov Samara), Sargis Hovsepyan (FC Pyunik), Valery Aleksanyan (FC Pyunik), Aleksandr Tadevosyan (FC Pyunik), Armen Tigranyan (FC Pyunik), Egishe Melikyan (FC Stal Alchevsk).

Midfielders: Karen Aleksanyan (CSF Zimbru Chisinau), Agvan Mkrtchyan (FC Pyunik), Artavazd Karamyan (AFC Rapid Bucuresti), Artur Minasyan (FC Ararat), Samvel Melkonyan (FC Banants), Romik Khachatryan (Anorthosis Famagusta FC), Hamlet Mkhitaryan (without a club).

Forwards: Armen Shahgeldyan (FC MIKA), Edgar Manucharyan (AFC Ajax), Aram Hakobyan (FC Banants), Ara Hakobyan (FC Stal Alchevsk), Nshan Erzrumyan (FC Ararat Yerevan), Robert Zebelyan (FC Kuban Krasnodar), Arman Karamyan (FC Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt).
