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!

Where did you see olayinka will be called up? https://gazetametro.net/olayinka-nuk-do ... -nigerine/

The thing about cikalleshi is that he has never given any bad performances with the nt just been a bit unlucky earlier on in his career with us, he is now finally starting to get a bit of a chance to play and has 3 goals in Albania’s last 3 games. That being said he is 29 and not getting any younger, olayinka would’ve been a big upgrade but seems that hope is gone now

If he is indeed called up that obviously will settle it. I think he personally used us a leverage to get a Nigerian call up and kudos to him if he did.

LMAO

That article mentioned that Olayinka did get called up..... for the Nigerian NT. :lol2: :rrokullisem:

Not completely your fault because it's a click bait title but you should read the whole thing.

I'll have to see the lineup choices before I can guess. If Balaj, Cika, Ramadani, or w/e random player starts then we'll surely lose.

Ultimately, I think our midfield will get over run. I don't think we can realistically create many chances on goal and I think Reja will try a formation which puts crosses in the box. 2-1 Turkey.
Don't worry, Hysaj will play forward and score a hattrick and Roshi will play CB and help us keep a clean sheet.

I hope Olayinka did get a call from Nigeria. You should play for your blood and not be used by some team that couldn't care less about you.

At least we can say we produced a Nigerian international, who aren't a bad NT. :D

I have a feeling that Albania will win.

Turkey are choke artists.
You do have a point. It's a battle between two choke artist so we'll find out who's the biggest choker.

Cekici and Broja both called up.

We should just start Broja against Moldova to get his feet wet. Don't start him vs Turkey tho (Let Cikaleshi and Balaj shit the bed instead).

I hope we have some other new additions. Might as well start preparing for the next qualification cycle.

Honestly I wouldn't start Balaj ever again. Maybe Cika and Sadiku upfront since Sadiku now plays with Bare at Malaga. Then bring Broja in around minute 65-70.

Manaj and Sadiku are on solid form, maybe they can play together.

Mavraj and Berisha won’t get called . Selahi and Selmani are the new addons.

This Selahi guy is interesting. He's a starter for FC Twente which has always been a decent team but this season they seem to be struggling. Last week they lost to Feyernood 5-1 and Selahi was subbed off at minute 57(Not a good sign but maybe it was just an off game? ) Today they play again so lets see if he starts.
