October 9, 2014 - Trajkovski, Jahovic & Abdurahimi score in win over Luxembourg
"Besart Abdurahimi pulled out all the stops with a splendid finish deep into added time as FYR Macedonia came back from 2-1 down to beat Luxembourg in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group C. The KSC Lokeren OV winger steadied himself out on the left before looping a powerful drive over Jonathan Joubert, giving Luc Holtz's side no time to respond. It was a cruel finish for Luxembourg, who had responded positively to going behind in the first half, and continued to threaten even after Adis Jahović's 66th-minute penalty cancelled out their half-time lead. Aleksandar Trajkovski had gone close before sweeping FYR Macedonia in front on 20 minutes, gathering Joubert's punt upfield and weaving through the Luxembourg defence to finish in some style. However, Stefano Bensi replied by bending a free-kick inside Tome Pacovski's left-hand post on 39 minutes and then nodded the ball on for David Turpel to peel off to the right and send an angled shot through the exposed goalkeeper's legs before the interval." - UEFA
