Today I would say the top three players are Lorik Cana, Hamdi Salihi and Altin Lala. Ervin Skela and Erion Bogdani would probably be in the top three but they are pretty much done now.

If you meant hisotrically then I'd say Panajot Pano, Loro Borici and Fadil Vokrri.

Well, it depends on what you consider talent. Jahmir Hyka is by far the most technically gifted Albanian player. Salihi has the talent to score goals while others like Cana have good leadership skills. No player is complete and they all have their flaws.

As for as history goes, I'm not sure but I hear Panajot Pano was the best. There were some Albanians who played for Juventus, Roma, etc. back in the day.

Pano was probably the best. Speed, agility, dribbling and finishing he was a natural. However his training left a lot to be desired. Riza Lushta and Naim Kryeziu, those were the guys who kicked ass in Serie A. They were also part of the great Tirana team of the 1930s before moving to Serie A. IMO that Tirana team of the 30s is without a doubt the best Albanian team ever. Riza Lushta(Juventus) scored 3 goals against Milan in 4-1 win for the Italian cup final.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Albania, Algeria, Poland, and some other nation can't remember have problems losing a lot of players. Poland lost a lot to Germany, mostly because the management of the Polish NT rejected players like Trochowski and Podolski, because they thought they had "too much talent already" and that they don't need them. I'm not sure what happened with Albania, I heard some players didn't apply because the management might be weak because of the economy so they shoot for bigger countries. I think if the country's economy gets better, it can attract its talented diaspora. Algerians apply for France, because they are greedy and want to make a name for themselves. This is why there are a lot of them there, but for some they were rejected by the Algerian management. But I do know a lot of Polish players are nationalistic and would rather play for Poland than Germany (even the ones born in Germany). But I think these 3 teams, if they can get a lot of diaspora support, they can become powerful and really produce a lot of competition and results.
