Watched Kosova’s replay. Althrough missing many key players they were tough for Spain to beat. Muriqi might not be the player for Lazio but he could easily be good enough for a Serie A midtable team. Greece’s win against Sweden opened the race for second place althrough i don’t see how Kosova can reach it with this manager.

Berisha and Rahmani had some bad injuries today. They’ll be out for a while, unfortunate for Rahmani who’s been playing very well.

He probably shouldn't follow Rashica's footsteps. At least not in the NT.

Rashica was good for Kosova for a while. He hasn't been doing much in the last couple of years though.

Rashica has never scored on or assisted against any team inside the top 50.

Kosova has mostly played teams outside Top 50 ever since they were allowed to pay international football. I can't hold it against Rashica for not scoring against England, Sweden or Czech Republic. He scored crucial away goals against Montenegro and Bulgaria during their Euro qualifiers.

Kosovo is not going anywhere with these low level players like Loshaj, Dresevic, Aliti, Muric, etc.

Then again even Rashica who's supposed to be the best player does nothing for them so...

That was a weak pen.

Kosovo lacks a midfield. With a midfield like that you're going to struggle controlling the game and keeping the backline clean. They need a proper holding midfielder who can make the simple pass and control the midfield defensiely. Maybe that retard Rexhbecaj can provide some professionalism in the midfield.

The backline on paper isn't that bad. The fullbacks are okay, Aliti has improved alot as a player over the years and Rrahmani is obviously a rock.

A new change at coach has been needed since their lost to Macedonia. They just have no grit and bend over easily.

What a goal by Isak who has looked like a major threat all game.
