Hristov among recalled quartet

Georgi Hristov, Goran Stavrevski, Igor Mitrevski and Igor Gjuzelov are back in the F.Y.R. Macedonia squad.

New F.Y.R. Macedonia coach Dragan Kanatlarovski has brought Georgi Hristov, Goran Stavrevski, Igor Mitrevski and Igor Gjuzelov back into his squad for Wednesday's friendly against Albania in Prilep.

Quartet recalled
Kanatlarovski, previously coach from 1999-2001, replaced Nikola Ilievski this week for the rest of the UEFA EURO 2004™ campaign, and his first act was to recall the quartet who had fallen out with his predecessor.

Injured players
However, his 20-man squad does not include defenders Aleksandar Vasovski and Sašo Lazarevski, midfield players Robert Popov and Mile Krstev and forwards Goran Stankovski and Aco Stojkov due to injury.

England match
The coach is hopeful of having them back in time for their penultimate qualifier against England on 6 September. Lying fourth in Group 7, his side can no longer qualify for Portugal.
