Asked about the Albania’s presentation in this tournament , the captain declared that the national team will speak with the ‘’language of the eagle’’.

The match Albania-Switzerland will be played on 11 June in Lens , and will be one of the most interesting fixtures of this European , because half of the players of Switzerland are of Albanian origin.
The French Connection? Nah, The Spanish Connection (feat. Dimitri Payet).
This is such a cruel sport. Albania did everything right for almost 89 minutes.
Two shots on target. Two goals. Amazing. No pointing fingers as to the reason why.
That pitch was a hot mess. Payet seemed to be the only French player not affected by it, for the simple reason that he was gliding above it.
Vive le 4-3-3. Both Martial and Pogba showed their inexperience, but I think Pogba will get the next call.
Kante is so good. Before he tired at the very end, he only lost two balls and immediately went about recovering them successfully. Wenger will definitely pay whatever it takes to secure his services.
The Scottish refereeing crew was not up to the occasion.
