Macedonia football coach Blagoja Milevski announced that the team is aware that Portugal are favorites, just as Italy was in the previous qualification match, but that Maedonia will play to win!

Nobody in the world expected that we will reach this far. But, step by step, we proved our quality and we deserve to be in the World Cup. Our players have just one message from me – to enjoy the moment, get out on that pitch and show their full potential and play their hearts out, Milevski said.

Milevski added that all players are feeling well, the stating line-up is determined and that he expects all to play the pre-arranged role.
