Coach Robert Prosinečki has given Nurlan Novruzov, top scorer in the 2014/15 Azerbaijani Premier League, the chance to prove him wrong after calling up the 22-year-old for Azerbaijan's Group H qualifiers against Croatia and Malta. Prosinečki was earlier quoted as saying the FC Zire forward "does not fit into my playing style" but, with injuries to Namik Alaskarov and Maxim Medveded, he has opted to experiment.
