This was supposed to be thier historical chance...
After being eliminated from the Champions League bye Lille OSC, Rabotnicki got another chance - the UEFA Cup. They were very happy after the draw. Basel is not so strong like in the previous years, they said. Basel is out of form now, WOW this is our historical chance... Macedonian team can qualify in the groups... We will not defend in Basel... We will go to score a goal there... Everything will be decided on the re-match in Skopje...
And they went there. The live TV broadcast didn't even started. And... BANG! BANG! BANG! 65th second Kuzmanovic 1:0, 6th minute Petric 2:0, 34th Majstorovic 3:0, 40' Petric 4:0, 71' Christiano 5:0, 73' Christiano 6:0... The record defeat of a Macedonian team is the 7:0 of Makedonija Gj.P. away to Bastia in the 1998 Intertoto Cup, so we got some thoughts that we'll have new record.
But luckely Basel had mercy for Rabotnicki. They were playing arround like with small children and got relaxed in the last minute. The crowd was already leaving. The ones who were still there, stayed to finished their beer and cigar.
But Basel got relaxed too much. Pejcic scored a goal in the 89' for Rabotnicki. The guy was happy like he scored the decisive goal in the CL final. Buckley from Basel saw that and he felt sorry for the Macedonians so he said what the hell and in the 92' he scored an own goal.
And that's it, 6:2. Was this neccesary? Why did Rabotnicki conceded 6 goals? I know that they missed Jovanovski, their best defender, but can this be the excuse? Why were you so greedy??? Why did you go in Basel to score a goal?! Here you go, you scored 2 but how much did you concede? 6!!! Why didn't you go in Switzerland with the thoughts "not to concede a goal"? Defend, defend and defend and get a chance from counter attack. In Macedonia we say "Greedy ass eats 3 $%&*s. There you go, you ate 6!
They will come back in Macedonia today with their head down and they will feel ashamed. But this shouldn't be for shaming because this is the reality. This showed us the level of Macedonian clubs in Europe.
