[World Cup Qualifier: 07/09/2012] Albania vs Cyprus

Just over 2 weeks till the opening game of our World Cup qualifiers against Cyprus. This is a must win game if we want to have a crack at qualifying and hopefully its a packed stadium to cheer on the team. Alban Meha and Burim Kukeli are expected to be called up which will be a massive, massive boost but nothing official yet. Last time we played Cyprus under Kuze the score was 6-1.

Ujkani
Lila-Cana-Mavraj-Vangjeli?
Curri?-Kukeli
Roshi-Meha-Hyka
Bogdani

It would be more ideal to play Meha in his natural position out wide but since we lack an attacking midfielder he will have to play there. Hopefully Vangjeli and Curri are back in time and have had at least a bit of game time with their clubs.

Definitely a must win if we think we have any shot at qualifying. Here's a little of what we can expect from Cyprus and their most recent results:

For the Euro qualifying they only got 2 points (draw away @ Portugal and draw home against Iceland) Interesting that the group includes Norway and Iceland as well. Cyprus replaced its manager in June 2011.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Eu...ifying_Group_H

Recent friendlies include:
Bulgaria 1-0 Cyprus (8/15/2012)
Cyprus 0-0 Serbia (2/29/2012)

I admittedly don't know much on Cyprus's squad. APOEL had CL success last, and AEL looks like it might make the group stage this year. Im curious if either team had Cypriot players of high quality.

Cyprus is VERY weak.

But this will be a hard game looking at Albanian midfield.

0-0 or 1-0 win is my call.

Kukeli has come out and said he hasnt been contacted by FSHF in three months. Hopefully these duds hurry up and get it sorted. This is a fatal blow if he doesnt play.

According to Curri he wont be match fit for the upcoming games therefor unavailable. We're screwed.

I think Kapllani needs to get a call up if not a start this match. He's been on a tear this season. Just keep him as striker and not a winger or supporting striker in which Kuzhe tried to use him as :notlist:

Yea he is no longer in their plans because Kace popped out.

You can play Kace against Cyprus because you're looking to dominate but Kukeli would've been better for Swiss game.

Haha whos in their plans Lilaj? Bulku? Gtfo with shiit footballers like Bulku who start you have absolutely no hope of winning games at international level. Kukeli himself wont be enough but it would be a start and I highly doubt Kace will be called up. The one time we get a favorable draw and we can do something about it by calling players that will give us a chance FSHF continue to fuk up and downgrade us.

I agree they are making a mistake with Kukeli but come on.. we all know how conservative fshf is with these Kosovars from abroad.


They see Bulku as a starter.. The question is who partners him. FSHF is very close with Greek football so I think Kace is called up(since he's not called up to u21)

Kace cant defend and is too small but when it comes to passing, intelligence/how to read game.. He's pretty good.

Bogdani should definitely not start as he's 34 and just wont cut it anymore. Salihi should start and be partnered by either Sadiku (Goal Scorring Machine) or Cani. Roshi on the wing should be lethal then Hyka on the other side. I'd play Cana central with Kukeli and the defence is really bad but i like Vanjelli. Cyprus should be a push over, the real challenge is Switzerland as if we win both we will be 70% sure to qualify.

Wonder is Shaqiri and Xhaka will play...Plus Memedi and the others

I blame De Biasi because he is the coach and surely he must know that Bulku is a dud and the rest of those pub players that dont deserve a mention. Another thing he plays in Iran ffs. De Biasi should recognise the problem and confront FSHF with what players he needs. Curri and Vangjeli will be out for this game which leaves 2 massive holes in starting 11. I think we will most likely finish with 1 point after these 2 games. Just a funny thought to leave you, imagine Shaqiri against Dallku

Defensivley we are poor so hopefully we can score a lot of goals and see matches through. I don't know why Besart Berisha isn't getting callled up as he was the top scorer in Australia last season.

Salihi doesn't deserve to start as he's not in favor with his team. I think Kapllani should get the start as he's been playing great so far in the second bundesliga. I would like to see Januzi get some PT as I think he's a good player. Kapllani-Bogdani-Cani-Januzi should be our forward depth

Personally I think Salihi is at his prime and deserves to start, on the other hand Bogdani is old and slow. I'd partner Salihi with a Sadiku as this kid is a unstoppable goal scoring machine. Hyka is smalll and tricky so he'd come in handy and we really need to use Roshi's spped to the maximum on the wing.
