We still have a chance of qualifying , got 6 more easy points and we can hope for a win vs Turkey / anything vs France
Well, what we'd need from what I see is to pick up all points from the remaining games and for France to completely hammer Turkey.
Or we get a draw off France. (France would still need to beat them.)

Turkey has a huge advantage because they beat France. I wouldn't rule out beating them in Istanbul but that's not enough unfortunately

That makes shit annoying but I think it will be motivation for us.
If we go there and beat them but lose to France we need to win on GD.
Expect us to try to hammer Moldova and Andorra.

Even if we don’t make that second spot, third spot is still pretty good and worth fighting for considering what’s gone down

This nations league nonsense has taken away that 3rd spot . Don’t know what happens if teams qualify through both the qualifiers and playoffs

Roshi with the turnaround again.

Very impressed by Bare. I liked almost everybody though, except Memo and Manaj (yeah I know he gave the second assist, but that's the only good thing he did in the entire game).

I don't know what game you were watching but Manaj was actually amazing today. Best game I have ever seen him play. Strong on the ball, quick, hardworking, great hold up play, amazing assist and showed ball skills I never knew he had. Bare also was very impressive. Bright future for both of them if they continue to grow. Apollonia coming through for the NT :)

Bare has improved a lot since he last played for the u-21. His decision making was a problem but he reads the game better now.

Gjasula is the perfect Kukeli replacement. Calm, knows how to make the safe pass and he's strong physically.

I'm hoping for Ndoj to fill that box to box role instead of Memushaj. I respect Memushaj a lot but he looked so past it in the 2nd half. It was hard to watch. We also have Kace but coaches hate him so Ndoj's development will be crucial.
