Kosova 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!

Bekaj isn’t that great either. Gk can improve and they play even in their late 30s .

Bekaj has only himself to blame for the lack of development. He debuted as 17 year old and left his career on hands of conartist as Remzi Ejupi who was playing Afrim
Muqiqi (tallava singer) son over him. There is no player who has had more opportunities and offers to leave but croatian clubs were not the height of his dreams. "Cherry on the cake" is his transfer in the most toxic and inappropriate albanian club for "jabanxhi", this kind of move looks more as self career sabotage.

Those two half german gks (Bisinger and Weiper) of Kosova U21 and U19 seem good. Still it takes luck and scouting to find the great gk , Albania took a while till we found Etrit . He would never move to Serie A if he wasn’t part of our NT. Atm Albania has 5-6 very good prospects for that position coming through ranks. Kosova could cap some of them eventually , maybe one could turn out to be really good.

Only in Italy we have a dosen or so like: Elhan Kastrati, Marco Alia, Marco Molla, Cristian Bala, Klejvis Shiba, Orgito Kuqi, Simone Peqini, Fatmir Ceka, Enis Ujkaj, Kevin Demalija ...

I doubt it will be an issue in the long run as Muric will make experience and grow but sometimes a good gk like Handanovic gives you points and is worth much more than strikers we have.

Man, it's so sad Albania and Kosova split. Kosova doesn't have world beaters, but when you have depth even with decent players, you can play whoever is in form.

With all these players we could be a solid 2nd or 3rd seed team. We could qualify 30-40% of the time for major tournies.

A combined Albania - Kosova team may challenge Croatia for the best in the Balkans. Where we are so pitiful in attack Kosova make up with good attackers and whereas Kosova is so pitiful in defense we make up with good defenders.

Unless they split north Kosova and it joins with Albania . Joining would be a casus belli to start an all out Albanian-Serbian war.

Lol because they would never accept it . They prefer this stale mate status quo. Except having Bond Steel in Kosove there is military power in Kosove or Albania that could stop them. Albania’s military is relegated to some light infantry with gifted old ar70/90 Beterra from Italy. We don’t produce anything anymore and we don’t have airforce, drones, tanks , air defense systems or anything ... just relying on Nato .
