After Kazakhstan, Albania is playing against Lithuania, a match that must be won to maintain the status as the favorite in the group. Edy Reja is aware of the fact that it is expected to be a tough match against a physically strong rival.
"Lithuania's performance in the match against Albania has been very good. They have exerted constant pressure by removing the initiative from our team.
We conceded the goal due to increasing pressure and our individual mistakes . However, we are aware that it is a team with high technical skills.

We will try to find their weakest points by exerting our pressure and using our strongest sides, to reach our goal which is the victory of the match. All players have very good potentials and skills. Experience is not years. Passion and qualities can be expressed even at the age of 20, it is a matter of trust and how much you want to give on the field.

The AFF has a program to introduce the younger generations as an integral part of the National Team. "I thought to do this step by step, but the conditions made me get such a high number of new players", said Reja.
