Victory's Georgievski named to face Socceroos

Melbourne Victory's Daniel Georgievski could face Socceroo teammate Mark Milligan at international level after being selected to represent FYR Macedonia later this month.

Georgievski has been named in FYR Macedonia's 22-man squad for a Euro 2016 qualifier against Belarus on March 27 and a friendly against the Socceroos on March 30.

Both matches will be played in the Macedonian capital of Skopje, with manager Boshko Gjurovski making several changes to the team that lost 2-0 to Slovakia in their last outing.

Meanwhile Milligan, who will feature in friendlies against Germany in Kaiserlautern on March 25 as well as the FYR Macedonia match, will have even more responsibility in Australia's midfield following the recent retirement of stalwart Mark Bresciano.

Melbourne Victory will be well represented on upcoming international duty with Kosta Barbarouses (New Zealand) and Scott Galloway, Jason Geria and Connor Pain (Olyroos) also named to represent their country.

If Georgievski and Milligan both feature, it will be the first time two current Melbourne Victory teammates have played for opposing sides at full international level.

Georgievski has made 20 appearances for FYR Macedonia, with his most recent coming in a friendly against Qatar in May last year.
