The game ended with a 2-2 draw, and after the penalties for determining the winner our team celebrated a 7-6 victory. Simona Krstanovska scored twice for Macedonia in the 33' and 81'.

I am very happy with the performance. The girls gave their best, and although the opponent was strong we had realistic chances that we didn't manage to capitalise. However, the goal has been reached, we now have the structure of the team that will play in the qualifications in Portugal. I am glad that we have overcome the challenges from the first game, we had a lot of shoots on goal, and we managed to score twice. That means that this team has the strength for defence, but also has the power to score. I would like to congratulate all the players that played in this tournament, they fulfilled all my expectations - said the manager of the team, Atsrid Merko.

The following players were given opportunity in this game: Angela Peeva, Aleksandra Popovska (Evgenija Tapovska 46'), Ana Mickovska, Stefani Skerlevska, Elena Nakovska (Daniela Velevska 19'), Simona Krstanovska, Natasa Levkova, Arlinda Adili (Simona Damevska 70'), Aleksandra Markovska (Ane Bosevska 79'), Shkipe Bojku (Teodora Kiranova 85') and Enhi Sherifi (Saska Kokalovska 19').
