The halfback has been earlier called up to the Armenian national team, however, his physical state didn`t let him perform for them in the following friendly match.
Armenia will take on Belarus in a friendly game on March 25. The Armenian national team, that called up Anji footballer, analyzed Mkrtchyan`s state of health and decided not to field him in the Belarus encounter.
I have been missing trainings for about one month to injury, - Karlen explained to the official website. – Today I`ve taken the field to have a complete practice for the first time in a long period. Indeed, I`m far from being in ideal form now and can hardly help the national team.
The halfback continues training with the team for the upcoming fixture vs Terek.
