06 June 2017 – The National Team A of Kosovo held its first training session in the preparations for the qualifying match for the World Cup “Russia 2018” at the Agron Rama Stadium in Kastriot that is going to be played in Shkodra on 11th of June. This training was mainly as a test to see the situation of players and regeneration of those who had to play over the weekend.
Said after the training:
Albert Bunjaku, the Selector
Today it was more a test to see the players’ situation because some of them were off lately as well as a regeneration of those who had matches over the weekend. We have some absences and injuries such as Samir Ujkani’s injury who is currently under recovery and I believe that in the coming days, he would be ready. Also, Valon Berisha has a slight injury but I believe it is not going to be a problem. In addition, Bunjamin Kollolli, Elbasan Rashani and Leart Paçarada are missing due to injuries, but we will be prepared in maximum with the available players.
Anel Rashkaj, footballer:
I am glad I am back to the National Team. It is always an honor to play for your country. We are going to give the maximum in this match. It is not going to be easy but we will not give up.
