Can’t be more proud of my National Team, Armenia captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan said on social media after two consecutive wins in Nations League matches against Georgia and North Macedonia.
“Big congrats guys for the promotion to League B and qualification to the play-offs,” Mkhitaryan tweeted.
Armenia beat North Macedonia in an UEFA Nations League C league Group 2 match.
Hovhannes Hambardzumyan scored the only goal in the 55th minute.
Armenia thus picked up the much-needed 3 points to top the group. The winner of Group C2 gains promotion and move up in the tiers.
Armenia played without Sargis Adamyan, Gevorg Ghazaryan, Andre Calisir and Grigor Meliksetyan as they have tested positive for Covid-19.
Captain Henrikh Mkhitaryan was not allowed to join the team. Roma asked the Armenian Football Federation to relieve the player of his duties in the national team given the tense situation with Covid-19.
