MACEDONIA RETURNS HOME DEFEATED
Macedonia didn't manage to get some points in yesterday's Euro 2008 qualifying match against Croatia in Zagreb. The Macedonians started very well, heavily attacking and Goce Sedloski gave Macedonia the lead in the 36th minute. In the second half Croatia started to dominate the game, Darijo Srna equalised on the hour mark.
Macedonia was allready expecting the game to end in a draw, but then in the 69th minute Goce Sedloski was then sent off because of a second yellow card. With Macedonia down to 10 men, Croatia's control over the game got even worse and Eduardo da Silva (Brazilian with Croatian passport) snatched victory for Croatia with two minutes of the game remaining to put the Croat's two points clear of Russia at the top of the group.
MD: Too bad, Macedonia played very well in the first half it looked like we could get some points out of this match but it's probably not meant to be for Macedonia. Now it will be very, very hard for us to qualify, we should say, if there is a miracle about to happen.
