Macedonia beat Slovenia 2:1 in the 2020 European football championship qualifier in Skopje today.
Both goals for the home team were scored by Elif Elmas in the second half, after his first half goal was disallowed in a dubious move by the referee.
Angered by this injustice, Macedonia had a furious second half. Nestorovski and Pandev combined to bring Elmas before the Slovenian goal in the 50th minute and he hit the mark. In the 68th minute, following a pass from Ademi, Elmas again received the ball alone, in front of the Slovenian goal-keeper Jan Oblak and that made it 2:0 for Macedonia.
Slovenia was able to score its only goal through a penalty in the final seconds of the game.
The Macedonian team now goes to Warsaw, where they will play against Poland on Sunday.
