Midfielder Arijan Ademi is the latest name to withdraw from Ljubinko Drulović's squad for FYR Macedonia's Group C qualifier against Luxembourg on Saturday, the 24-year-old still suffering from an injury sustained on club duty with Dinamo Zagreb. "In the past few days he had been training on his own and he is still not fully fit," confirmed Drulović. "He is a very important player for us and it's a shame he won't be able to help us." Right-back Goran Siljanovski, forward Jovan Kostovski and midfielders Ferhan Hasani and Vladimir Dimitrovski are also absent for various reasons.
FYR Macedonia coach Ljubinko Drulović has made two late additions to his team for the matches against Luxembourg and Spain by calling up Vardar right-back Vladica Brdarovski and Rabotnicki forward Blaze Ilijoski
The 25-year old Brdarovski, capped twice, replaces Goran Siljanovski, who has been forced to withdraw after suffering an ankle injury in training on Monday. The experienced 31-year-old forward Ilijoski has received a late call-up following Drulović's decision to leave out defensive midfielder Vladimir Dimitrovski for disciplinary reasons.
