FYROM turned Group C on its head by beating previously undefeated Estonia like a drum on Wednesday.
The Baltic country travelled to Skopje on the back of three wins, including a 72-66 triumph over FYROM at the start of the additional qualifying round for EuroBasket 2007.
Estonia took a big step towards reaching the next phase of the additional qualifying tournament for EuroBasket 2007 with a resounding 68-54 triumph over winless Sweden.
The Estonians, who play in the shadow of Baltic neighbors Lithuania and Latvia - two sides that have already booked places in the EuroBasket - prevailed for the third time in a row.
Estonia are being allowed to dream.
Things were looking a little bleak for Tiit Sokk`s men when they finished a distant third in their group during the first round of qualifying for EuroBasket, which starts in Spain next month.
Estonia survived a third-quarter fightback from FYR of Macedonia to claim a 72-66 win and remain top of Group B in the EuroBasket 2007 qualifying round.
Martin Muursepp was the star for the winners, pouring in 17 points and pulling down five rebounds in a contest that was still in the balance heading into the closing moments.
