Issue with using router in Micro application

Hi I was trying to inject Router to Micro application like it is written in the docs (project structure fits to PSR-4). Below is simplified code:

abstract class AbstractBootstrap { ... protected function initDi() { $this->diContainer = new Di\FactoryDefault(); Di::setDefault($this->diContainer); }

    protected function initLoader()
        require_once ROOT_PATH . '/vendor/autoload.php';

    protected function initRouter()
        $router = new Router();
                'namespace' => '\Some\NameSpace\Controllers',
                'controller' => 'Auth',
                'action' => 'login'

    protected function runApplication()
        return $this->application->handle();


And get exception: Matched route doesn't have an associated handler

After looking up source code of micro.zep i found the following:

let router = <RouterInterface> dependencyInjector->getShared("router");

         * Handle the URI as normal

         * Check if one route was matched
        let matchedRoute = router->getMatchedRoute();
        if typeof matchedRoute == "object" {

            if !fetch handler, this->_handlers[matchedRoute->getRouteId()] {
                throw new Exception("Matched route doesn't have an associated handler");

I guess that when i inject router it doesn't update internal _handlers array

Is it a bug? In docs it is writen that router injection is possible for micro app:

use Phalcon\Mvc\Micro; use Phalcon\Mvc\Router;

$router = new Router();

$router->addGet( '/orders/display/{name}', 'OrdersClass::display'; } );

$app = new Micro(); $app->setService('router', $router, true);

Sorry to necro this, but did you ever find a solution? I'm having the same problem.
