The game is over, the Macedonian football fans are disappointed and the hopes of qualifying are shattered, many fans will question themselves do we really have what it takes to qualify for a major tournament.
After the defeat in Croatia our chances for reaching the second place in this very tough and complicated group are slim, now we need a miracle to happen to qualify. But what do we do next? Do we wave the white flag and surrender or we stand still and fight to the end? Well I think the answer is simple. We have enough time until our next game against Israel at home to see what went wrong in the previous games and try to improve, we need to learn from our mistakes and make sure they don't happen again in the future. I completely understand the situation we are in the moment and agree that those qualification may well look over for us but we can't just simply give up now, we can't turn up for the next game just to make the numbers. The remaining games are as much important as the game against Croatia, they are not just for qualifying for the European Championship next summer, those remaining games are so much important for the Fifa World ranking. We need to win as much points as possible in the next games if we want to improve on our current position because that is going to be very crucial for the draw of the groups for the next World Cup.
Now in this difficult moment for the players as well we need to give them our vote of confidence and to give them all our support because on the end of the day they didn't let us down, they didn't ashamed our country, they give their best and they made us proud to be a Macedonians and I believe that with a little bit of luck in the next draw we can qualify for the next World Cup, but until then we don't need to let our emotions to take over and start blaming each other for this bad result, because we lost the game from a quality side which is full of recognized world class football players and as we all know only one can be the winner, in this unfortunate moment for us they are the winners but let's hope so the very next time we will put it wright.
