The captain of Ararat Hrayr Mkoyan has been called-up to the Armenian national team.
The Armenian national team is preparing for the matches against Northern Macedonia, Germany, and Liechtenstein, which will be held on September 2, 5, and 8.
The head coach of the Armenian national team Joaquin Kaparos commented on the invitation of Mikoyan:
"We have been following Hrayr Mkoyan for a long time, he took part in all the matches of the championship and the Cup last season. He won this right, and he wins it on the field.
As I noted, when choosing the roster of the national team, we do not look up or down. That is, we do not pay attention to the age of the players, but choose the best squad for the upcoming matches.
We have a big loss in the upcoming game: an experienced defender Varazdat Aroyan is disqualified, whom Mkoyan can replace perfectly. Mkoyan received an invitation to the national team according to statistics, the number of matches in his team, " Joaquin Caparros said.
From 2009 to 2018, Hrayr Mkoyan played 46 matches with the national team and scored one goal.
