Happy Birthday to our young match winner, Broja!
Dude scored one goal and he's our savior now. Let's not overreact please :)

Chances are we'll be eliminated by the time we're done playing Poland at home.

^ This is true. He still has long ways to go to prove himself. In the past few months he has done great but he has only faced low level and even amateur teams.

For Chelsea pre-season against 2nd/3rd division teams, for Southampton in the cup against some 3rd division team and last but not least, San Marino.

The signs are there when you watch him. He has the talent/attributes to succeed but now needs to establish himself against high level professional competition. If he does that then you can easily call him a super talent.

Scoring the winning goal after being subbed in late against Hungary should warrant the hype imo. Also his strikes are very powerful and accurate and his finishing seems to have improved now along with good hold up play and good passing.

The good thing about this, is Balliu will probably show up next match against Hungary. We're in 2nd place, and he's not going to miss a chance to possibly play in the WC even if it's a 10-20% chance.

Our entire defence will likely be Top 4 league in Hungary. I just hope somehow Strakosha makes it to the starting lineup. Berisha is a disaster.

Without Armando BOMBER, Albania is already eliminated! This is what a difference maker is..

Go find me another Albanian to score a late winner on a team ranked in the top 40. I’ll wait!

Hopefully Broja is in good form and not injured. Maybe Poland we can perform some miracle due to home field advantage, but against Hungary it's all down to him again.
