Uneventful draw

Macedonia and Slovakia rounded off their Euro 2012 qualifying campaigns with an

uneventful draw in Skopje.

Juraj Piroska opened the scoring for the visitors in the 54th minute but

Nikolce Noveski equalised 11 minutes from time to ensure the spoils were

shared.

Both teams headed into the encounter knowing they had no chance of qualifying

or even improving on their positions in Group B - Slovakia fourth and Macedonia

fifth.

There were few opportunities of note in the first half, Slovakia midfielder

Vladimir Weiss firing wide when well placed in the 13th minute and Macedonia

striker Ivan Trickovski seeing a fierce free-kick parried by visiting goalkeeper

Jan Mucha.

The deadlock was broken within nine minutes of the restart, though, FK Senica

frontman Piroska lashing a low right-footed shot past Macedonia keeper Martin

Bogatinov from close range.

Bogatinov had to be alert four minutes later to keep his side in the match,

getting his body in the way of a Marek Hamsik blast and then saving another

effort from Weiss in quick succession.

Ivanovski and Muhamed Demiri were off target when well placed for Macedonia,

but the warning signs were there for Slovakia and the hosts duly got back on

level terms in the 79th minute when Noveski headed home Trickovski's corner.

Slovakia had one final sight of goal in the 89th minute but Bogatinov was in

the right place to deny Lubomir Michalik.
