Like I said previously, if he keeps growing at this rate and doesn't pull a Januzaj, he can be the best defender in the world.
Haven’t you heard of de ligt? :zgerdhimje:

Honestly I thought Lukaku won every duel against him(besides the one where Kumbulla won a foul) but he's a tough matchup. Too strong and he just backs you down like Shaq. Inter was bad and their only hope was those long balls to Lukaku and him holding up play and passing.

Finally had a chance to watch Verona today. Kumbulla is the real deal. It's his debut season, and he looks like a seasoned vet. Kept Lukaku in his back pocket throughout the game. He was unlucky on that first goal, as Lukaku took a shot and he managed to get a foot in to deviate it, but it hit the bar and deflected to another Inter player. There was also another time he got burned by Lautaro Martinez when the defensive lineup was high, but it was 83rd minute in the middle of July and Martinez was just subbed in with fresh legs.

Other than those 1-2 cases, his man marking is awesome. If he can handle the physicality of Lukaku, there ain't no one else he can't handle. Just gotta make sure he doesn't get burned by pacey players with a high lineup.

Like I said previously, if he keeps growing at this rate and doesn't pull a Januzaj, he can be the best defender in the world.

I bet on Werder to win that game. Needless to say that was one of the craziest last 5 minutes of a match I've witnessed. :wallbang: :wallbang:
Had the match recorded on pvr and stopped watching at the 80th minute when Rashica got subbed off. At the time it looked like Werder Bremen was cruising to a 1-0 victory but when I checked final score I couldn’t believe my eyes. That last pen for Heidenhiem was soft to be fair but they played well through both legs. Unfortunately, an unlucky own goal early on had them on the back foot all night and proved fatal for their chances at promotion

Rashicas squad avoids relegation via away goals in what is probably his last match for them

Liridon Balan scored a Hattrick and made an assist for Aarau against Lausanne.

Kumbulla came through Verona's youth ranks. It's completely different...

It's much different for players from Albania and Kosova. I do agree with your approach btw. Young Albanian superliga players need to go through Croatia then to a real European league. I hope the trend to Croatia continue and more networks in Turkey are established. Poland also seems like a league that is becoming more of an outlet too.

Unlike Rrahmani and the others, Kumbulla is not an Albanian product, he is an Italian product..
Club wise, yes. But he's been playing with our youth teams since forever. That shaped him as well.

You can't ignore 5 years of NT coaching, especially at that young of an age...
