Kirovski developed through the youth system at Old Trafford and he was still on Manchester United's books when he won his first cap for the USA against Saudi Arabia in October 1994. However work permit problems led to a move to Borussia Dortmund and he subsequently spent a rather unproductive season with Sporting Lisbon before joining English First Division club Crystal Palace. A tall and skilful player who is at home in midfield or as a striker, he featured regularly in the final round of qualifying games for the 2002 World Cup Finals. He signed for Birmingham City after being released by Crystal Palace in the summer of 2002.

Kirovski's contract at Birmingham City was cancelled in February 2004.
