Coach Kosovo, Albeit Bonaci last among all my colleagues from our group have announced the list of players called for the camp before the qualifying matches for the 2018 world Cup with Ukraine (October 6, Albanian shkodër) and Croatia (9 October).
Delay the coach explained that the players are bound to clubs. At least strange, given that the Legionnaires and those in the national team of Kosovo over 90 per cent would have to call in advance. Besides being on the list does not mean participation in the collection.
So at the last moment from the candidates fell, breaking his leg, a key midfielder Arber Zeneli from the Dutch “Heerenveen”. He is joined in the virtual hospital to Benjamin Kololi, Herolinda Shal and Enis Alushi.
In addition, against Ukraine will not be able to play both as a midfielder by the name of Berisha – Valon from the Austrian Salzburg and Bernard from the Russian “Akhmad” (formerly “Terek”). They will miss this game due to suspension. As well as, by the way, our Viktor Kovalenko and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
– Loss – serious – commented the part of albert Bonaci, but it will give the opportunity to young. I think with the support of our Albanian brothers, we are able to win over the Ukrainian team. The main thing – to withstand the first half.
By the way, in addition to the losses there and return. Again in the national team missing in the September matches of Elbasan Magnus Andersen, Bersant Celina, Alban Pnishi, Falmer Kastrati, Fidan Aliti and Vizar Becky.
