Urartu FC graduate, midfielder Sergey Mkrtchyan was called up to the Armenian national team for the first time. The 21-year-old footballer will be preparing with the national team for the last group stage matches of the UEFA Nations League 2022/2023, against the national teams of Ukraine and Ireland.
After being invited to the national team, Mkrtchyan spoke about his first emotions:
“Of course, I was very happy about this news, I was a little surprised, but during these years I tried to do everything to have the honor of being called up to the national team. We can say that a childhood dream came true.
The squad was announced during our training session, and when I picked up the phone, I saw missed calls from my family and friends. First of all, I called my mother and brother back, it seems that they were more happy than me.
I will try to do my best during the training camp to get a chance to help the team and on the field.”
