Historical matches between Kosovo and Albania (pictures included!)
The month of January registered something like an historical event for futsal, as the Kosovo selection made its absolute debut in two friendlies against the Edi Martini's Albania.
The first game took place in the capital city of the modern Kosovo, Pristina and ended with the home country overcoming the Albanian side by 5-3.
Two weeks later the event was repeated in Elbasan (Albania), with the local selection obtaining this time a 2-2 tie. In this second meeting took place also a women futsal match between the Albanian Olympic Selection and a team from Pristina: also in this case the Kosovo's side proved to be stronger than the albanian one.
Below you can have a look at the matches details and enjoy some pictures from the first game played in Pristina.
