As a member of the senior Macedonian national team, he played at the EuroBasket 1999 and the EuroBasket 2009. He was considered a leader of the team at the EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania, where he was crucial in the victories of the Macedonian national team against Croatia (78–76) and Greece (72–58), in the group stage. Despite carrying multiple injuries throughout the tournament, he participated until breaking both hands against Georgia.
