Red and yellow rhapsody this evening in the Macedonian capital as the home side took on the visiting Czechs in a deciding match of who will go to the European championship.
Macedonia needed a win to top Group 4, and a win is precisely what they dished out for nearly 7,000 fans in the packed Boris Trajkovski arena.
Led by masterful Kire the Rocket man Lazarov and great goalkeeping by Ristovski, the home side simply overwhelmed a good Czech team who was leading the group coming in into the match. However, Macedonia dished out such a beatdown that the 13 goal final score difference jeopardized Czech’s 2nd place and trip to the European championship after Iceland’s win over Ukraine earlier this evening.
The half time score was 16-10, and this is what happened right at the half:
In the end, to mark the complete dominance of the home side, goalie Mitrevski scored on the Czech from his own goal. Yes, it was that kind of a match.
