29 May 2018 – The Kosovo’s National Team defeated tonight the National Team of Albania with 3:0 in a friendly match that was played at the Letzigrund Stadium in Zurich.
In addition to the spectacle that the Kosovo footballers gave with a fantastic appearance in the green field, great atmosphere was given also by our fellow countrymen who unanimously supported both teams, while applauding the beautiful game of Bernard Challandes’s players.
Kosovo was well placed in the field, tactically disciplined and had excellent ball circulation. The ‘Dardans’ kicked off the match furiously, creating chances for goal in the 2nd minute when Donis Avdijaj came in front of the goalkeeper, Etrit Berisha, but the latter was victorious.
However, the good game of Kosovo brought the score in the 20th minute when Arbër Zeneli scored after a great assist of Besar Halimi. Challenges’ boys managed this lead without problems until the end of the first half, going to the break relaxed. Kosovo started the second half well, with fluent actions, scoring the second goal in the 50th minute with a super goal of Arbër Zeneli.
Meanwhile, the third goal and the final score to 3: 0 was sealed by the extraordinary talent, Edon Zhegrova in the 67th minute with another spectacular goal. Kosovo had several other good chances but it was the goalkeeper Etrit Berisha who responded well, while in the last few minutes, the Kosovo goal was denied by the pole after Shqiprim Taipi’s shot. For Challandes this was the third win in the three matches he is leading Kosovo.
