Albania pays San Marino at ''Elbasan Arena'', three points are a must

Albania is getting ready for the next eliminatory challenge of the World Cup, "Qatar 2022", the one with San Marino, which will be played on Wednesday at "Elbasan Arena", at 20:45. On the eve of this challenge, coach Edoardo Reja has appeared at the press conference where of course he has asked for maximum concentration. Abrashi and Gjasula will be absent for this challenge, but Hysaj, Bare and Manaj will make their return.

Coach Reja stated: "It has often happened that after a victory we take the next match easily. So San Marino will have a hard time, it is an organized team, we have to have concentration and play well. We need to leave as little space as possible because they are dangerous. This is our decisive match, I do not think of anything else despite Poland playing against England, I only think of our challenge. We have strong competitors in this group. We have Hungary that you have seen that is physically strong. "Poland is also strong and has quality."

"We have also grown lately , we have shown it in matches, I think the key is to change the mentality of Albania. I said even after the match with Hungary that the striker is our first defender, now we have made mistakes and we must analyze them as best we can. "We have to have the right concentration and if we succeed we will play our chances until the end."
