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!

Veseli has generally been okay for the National Team and has punched above his weight when playing for us. His club career is another story. Gjasula seems like a walking disaster at CB with his lack of pace and bonehead decision making.

We are missing Broja, Bare, Gymcity and Ismajli who are perhaps our four best players. Albania can't overcome that.

Uzuini is doing something that is somewhat historic for Albanian players. When has an Albanian (especially a domestic one) scored this many goals in a competitive league? Imagine the hype if Cikaleshi or Balaj would be able to do this?
Kapllani and Salihi did this on a similar level and without penalties I think.

Not domestic players but just look at Gashi and Vrioni. All these players have dominated that 2nd division/Austria/Switzerland type of level but couldn't cope in top leagues. Uzuni tried it last year and he couldn't cope at all.

That's why people need to relax with the praise until proven otherwise. You're not beating teams like Poland and Czech Republic with 2nd division players.
Granada is a serious club. Not first division at the moment but definitely not village level like some teams in Austria or Switzerland that Gashi/Vrioni scored against.

This league is typically quite hard to put up big numbers in and a lot of good players have come from there. It has to say something that he is probably going to end up being the player of the year in 2nd division Spain.

There is one thing about Uzuni and it's that he's scored goals at every club he's been at. He has it in him and I think it will continue next year when he's in some first division be it with Granada or otherwise. We already saw in his LaLiga stint he was good enough to cause problems to defenses and get to chances but his finishing wasn't there. With a bit of confidence and luck I think he can do double figures in a top league as well if he starts (and typically, players with that intensity/work-rate don't get benched).

Albania hasn't had a player like this since Valdet Rama. He's actually not the fastest so he's not getting past people Roshi style but he's shifty and has great ball control.

him , bajrami , asllani , bare, we’re finally starting to get more technical players. Just imagine when Broja is back to add that to the mix.

Lol, why hasn't Roshi been called if he's playing for his club?

I wouldn't be surprised if we get destroyed 4-0, 5-0 or something. Too many injuries, unknown coach/tactics, mediocre squad, away game.

Go full bunker on them, but you're probably right and we've got no idea how Sylvinho wants his team to play. Big mistake, Fshf should've arranged a friendly prior to the game on Monday!

Panorama was predicting today that Asllani, Bajrami and Mehmeti all watching from the sidelines. If true, this will be a 4-0 beatdown. Only Albania does these bizarre lineup selections. Elif Elmas has been starting for Macedonia since he was 18 and he's their Ronaldo. You don't see them benching him for Lazar Markovski.
