Poland don't deserve 3 points. What an absolute pity they get 3 points playing such a terrible game and did nothing but get a lucky rebound from a free kick.

Good game boys. In those 5-10 minutes towards the end where we were playing more as a team and passing and moving we opened up the game. We need to just learn to keep our heads and the wins and goals will come.

Uzuini is pretty much Gashi 2.0.

Albania with another “morale” loss to Poland

Mehmeti and Bajrami with their ball carrying showed their quality while Seferi didn’t have one good touch.

Can’t wait for Broja to come back quick enough.

In other news Czech’s drew 0-0 … this group is open

The defense was actually solid for most of the game and formation is not bad. It's just the players in it.

21 fouls - 2 yellow cards for Poland. Lol.

Maybe if ref cracked down more on their butchering as per usual (they did the same thing last time too) then we would have more openings offensively.

At least we know we have 4 good CBs now and are solid at RB/LB starter wise.

Honestly, I though this game would be MUCH worse. It's a "plus" given our squad is ravaged by injuries and is playing with new tactics.

Other than that, the only major positive of this game is Mihaj. I remember he cost us a last minute goal with a brainfart recently. Here he seemed much more improved. Hopefully he turns into another Djimsiti, since Djimsiti also cost us a major goal early on in his career.

Old Problems:
- Midfield is still filled with amateurs like Gjasula, Ramadani, etc... These people need to go. Bajrami/Asllani need to play together.
- Cika should go fishing with Balaj
- Oh and Uzuni is a choker

New Stuff
- At least no 3-5-2 garbage anymore.

Don't agree with pessimism here. We were missing half our team and limited them to basically nothing the whole game, whilst creating a golden chance ourselves that Uzuni sadly missed.

But it is such a blow to qualification hopes that we couldn't get a point here that we deserved.
