FYR Macedonia have named Cedomir Janevski as their new national coach to replace former Wales and Real Madrid boss John Toshack who stepped down after just a year in charge.

Janevski, 51, will take over the squad just weeks before the start of a FIFA World Cup™ 2014 qualifying campaign.

"It is a great honour for me, but also a huge responsibility," the former international defender told reporters.

Janevski has so far coached Olympiacos, Serbia's Red Star Belgrade and Cyprus's Enosis Neon Paralimni.

Macedonia face Croatia, Serbia, Belgium, Scotland, Macedonia and Wales in Group A World Cup 2014 qualifying matches.
