25 April 2024 – The second friendly match between Kosova and Bulgaria for U-15 age group was a repeat of the first friendly match; not only in terms of the result but also in terms of the way the game progressed. After a very engaging game by both teams, the result of the match played at the FFK National Camp in Hajvalia was tied 1:1. Even in today’s match, the first half was marked by a slight dominance of the Bulgarians who took the lead in the 16th minute through Petar Blagoev with a close-range header. Things changed positively for the young Dardanians in the second half, creating more chances to score and as a result, they equalized. It was the 69th minute when Albion Rexhepi scored with a shot from inside the area. After this goal, the Dardanians increased the pressure towards the Bulgarian goal and created several chances but failed to score the winning goal. On the other hand, the Bulgarians almost did not punish the spaces created in defence when they hit the crossbar in the 74th minute. Head Coach, Ilir Nallbani assessed these two friendlies as very important for this generation of footballers, who from now on, due to their age, will continue with the U16 National Team under the direction of Mehmet Kurda.
