Euro 2020

■ THE BOSS IGOR ANGELOVSKI ANGELOVSKI upset the odds by guiding North Macedonia to their first major tournament. The 45-year-old has described that as ‘a dream’ in itself. His next challenge is to try to ensure they give a good account of themselves. ■ THE STAR GORAN PANDEV HE turns 38 next month and made his international debut 20 years ago, but Pandev (above) remains North Macedonia’s most influential player. He has the most caps and goals in their history — and scored the historic winner in their play-off final against Georgia. ■ MY VERDICT LOOK at the bookmakers’ odds and right down at the very bottom you’ll find North Macedonia. It would rival Leicester’s Premier League title win for shock factor if they were to somehow win it (they won’t) but I’m sure they’ll enjoy the ride while it lasts. Leeds’ Ezgjan Alioski will be familiar to Premier League fans and they could produce a shock in an open group.
