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!

Kamberi was supposed to debut for the NT a year ago and hasnt even been able to join the team the entire time. And we have no reliable GK now. Lets just hope our defense is intact for these games with Kumbulla and Gym and hopefully start with a midfield of Abrashi Bare and Kallaku now without Gjasula.

Selmani is a solid GK and eventually even Molla can be one to count on. I woul’ve called that Rapid Wien rb instead of Doka. I guess we’ll get two victories with young motivated players. More space for Kallaku and co for sure otherwise we’d be watching the same lineup .... Armenia friendly got cancelled by UEFA.

Strakosha has been way too mediocre(at best) to be pretending injuries and taking games off.

But Selmani the u21 gk is indeed solid

This is why we need to get into that B league. Players fluking, faking injuries, not trying hard enough. Who the f*** wants to go to Kazakhstan in October?

Seeing the list as it is now i think Gym will be our captain for this 2 matches (only other serious candidate is Abrashi) guy totally deserves it being the most improved and reliable Albanian player after the Euro he so undeservedly missed
Also Emilliano Bullari is called up to the A team
Better this 19yo guys along with Broja Vrioni than the washed up mediocre trio that every year becomes worse (Sadiku,Balaj ,Cika)

Is it though? This kid is not even a starter for the u21 and is a Greek youth league player.

Gotta agree with Redi Jupi. The list is bizarre and full of amateurs. Might as well pick random players off the street if they are young enough.

Very weird call up for Bullari when Muci is the better player atm. I'm guessing Bushi probably pulled his strings to have Bullari called up over Muci as Bushi wants another win on his resume for when Reja eventually gets fired. Maybe also to cap tie Bullari?

In general I don't blame Reja too much since COVID is making playing football a mess let alone international football. It would have been a good time to make some random call ups but what ever.

Reja's tactic is clear cap-tie them and hope for the best it worked wonders with Kumbulla who hadn't had a single game with Hellas the first time he called him and is doing the same now that he has the chance Bullari is not for the A team now but the same goes with Molla Cepele
By the way Bullari plays at the best Greek club only if he was the next Lewadowski he would had minutes so young and if he had Greek national would be all over him
Durmishaj's case is still fresh
And offence is the main issue for Greece they called 18yo Tzolis after 10 games with PAOK and 1 goal
