Albanian national football team defeated by England 2-0

Albania's dream for a positive result against England has lasted only 38 minutes. The Red and Blacks, led by Edy Reja in ‘Air Albania’, were defeated 0-2 in the second match valid for the qualifiers of the World Cup ‘Qatar 2022’.

It should be noted that the red and black national team had the first chance to score with Myrto Uzuni, but the Berat player in the 13th minute proved to be inaccurate against goalkeeper Pope. 

In the second half Reja made some substitutions, but a mistake by Gjimshit, who until then was the best, brought Mount's goal in the 63rd minute. From that moment England only managed the situation and got three points that keep it in first place even after the second match in group I.

Meanwhile at the end of the match coach Reja was unhappy with the way the game went.

But the footballers of the National Team always remain unique in conveying the messages, because as it happened during the earthquake of November 26, before the match, the red and blacks made a very special gesture. They made a special dedication to Arjan Sala, the hero who lost his life in the flames at the shopping center "Casa Italia".

"Silent hero between us", was written on the shirts worn by the footballers of the National Team, where the photo of Arjan, 33 years old, was stamped on them.

The red and blacks' next match for the World Cup qualifiers is on March 31 against Andorra in transfer.
