Albanian National Team [General topic]

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!

Introducing “young talents” got us a superb 2-2 draw against Andorra a short while back, among many other promising results these past few years.

To put things into perspective, the last time the robust NT of andorra scored 2 goals was in a 2-0 win over San Marino in February of 2017. Before that, the second to last time they managed this feat was 18 years ago in a 2-0 win over Albania in April of 2002... The moral of the story here is that our “young talents” couldnt beat my local bin men, and a valiant effort from veteran players will be needed to best even the weakest of opponents.

Unlike Kosovo and North Macedonia who are trending up, Albania has been on a nose dive and no victory is guaranteed at this point, as our previous results have shown.

Nations League is the worst shit ever. I remember when it was exciting to learn the qualifying draws.

Lol, Albania might actually even have a chance to qualify for a WC during our lifetime now. And you will love Kosovo beating Greece.

You can’t qualify to WC through nations league , that’s why Dallku is right....we could use it only for going up in our league or test all youngsters...

It is linked to the WC a little bit but no where near the level of the Euros . I’d hate for us to qualify for 2022 anyway as it’s in Qatar .

Like I said this competition doesn’t matter and I’d rather us be in group c as when it is linked to euro 2024 we get an easy group like Kosove did so that’s why I say play youngsters and treat it like Friendlies
