9 September 2023 – The Kosova’s National Team drew 2:2 against the group’s favourite, Switzerland, at “Fadil Vokrri” stadium in Prishtina. Thus, the Dardans returned strongly with a positive game and result under the direction of the Head Coach, Primozh Gliha, after the surprising defeat in June against Belarus. The hero of the match was undoubtedly Vedat Muriqi who scored both goals for Kosova. Switzerland took the lead with Remo Freuler’s goal in the 14th minute. However, Muriqi equalized with a header after Milot Rashica’s cross in the 65th minute. The visitors regained the lead thanks to Amir Rrahmani’s own goal in the 79th minute. However, even this goal did not deter the Dardans who believed until the end in a positive result and in the last seconds of additional time, they achieved their goal when Vedat Muriqi scored again, this time after an excellent Rrahmani-Korenica combination, where the latter assisted with his heel for the Mallorca striker who was accurate from inside the area, sending the ball into the visitors’ net. The feast was for our footballers and the “Dardans” in the stands. A draw that restores enthusiasm, gives hope for even better performance in the future and why not a strong return in the race for European qualification. Now Kosova climbed to the level of four points in Group I and remains hopeful for European qualification although much about the journey of the Dardans will depend on the next match, which takes place on 12 September against Romania in Bucharest.
