Kosova Football National Team

With memories of the golden years (80's) of the albanian football still fresh on her mind, Albania is now attempting to recreate its strong football legacy. As young players start making their names abroad, the future is looking bright for Albanian football!

Hadergjonaj has been awful defensively. 16 minutes in and he has made 3 major errors including the goal.

Muriqi is such a beast

Muriq also saved Kosova a few times in goal

Kosovo is all enthusiasm and desire.

You could tell that Czech Rep was the more talented/technical team but the work ethic of Kosovo overwhelmed them.

Kosova won with their two best players out on injury (Rashica and Zeneli). Another one of their stars was on the bench to start the game (berisha). Dreshaj probably better than Aliti and might replace him soon (although Aliti has played fine for Kosova). They play such a nice style of play. Celina absolute class and so comfortable with the ball, Muriqi complete forward, Muriq absolute unit in goal. I hope they drop Zheregova because he's such a lazy player (didn't press on the first goal leading to an open pass to the box), this guy has talent but a terrible attitude. He should just rap with his sister because he'll be playing in some second division in a few years.

Also notice how Kosova players with pace.. Alot of their offense comes from quick counters. That's something the Albanian NT needs to do but it will never happen when Balaj and Cika slow the pace down.

It's also amazing how many players the Albanian NT ignored from Kosova. Rashica, Muriqi, Rrahmani and B.Berisha all probably could be starting for the Albanian NT. But whatever I'm sure Muriqi would have been benched for Balaj so it's best these guys weren't wasted by the incompetence of the FSHF.

Albania had a good team at that time and apart from Rashica no one else deserved to get called up from the players you mentioned. These guys have improved alot while the ones that used to play for Albania from 2014-16 haven't.

Rrahmani starting in Serie A, who would've thought?

The only thing i feel bad was for Djimsiti and noone of the others left out of the Euro 2016 finals. Djimsiti actually was one of the guys who helped to archieve the qualifiers while Shala, Rashica and Rrahmani were subs at best ...
