The language of Footbal in Albania

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!

The language of Footbal in Albania

Hi guys,

I write for a blog - The Language of Football - and I've put together a langauge profile of the Albania team at Euro 2016.

It was a genuine pleasure to learn more about Shqiptar.

Anyhow, here it is. Hope it's accurate and represents your team as you'd like.

Best of luck for today's game!

Shqiperi, O nena imd- it is 'ime' not 'imd'.

O sa mire me wen Shqiptar- it is 'qen' not 'wen'.

It was a good read well done. But here are some suggestions i have for you as an Albanian.
'There are the Kosovan- and Albanian-born players who speak Albanian' there is no such thing as 'kosovan' only Albanians from Kosova. Kosova to us Albanians is part of Albania.

On his appointment in 2011, manager Gianni di Biasi was given carte blanche to use this diaspora, convincing players from Switzerland, Germany, Italy and the former Yugoslavia to join the project. The 'former Yugoslavia' i guess is Kosova, would be better to write that.
