Are Albania the new Latvia?

Latvia made the 2004 euros and then became the new San Marino.

I can't see Albania making the world cup and now they will lose many players to Kosovo so this makes it harder for the country to go forward.

In the past they were a bad team but not as bad as losing to teams like the Faroes...however this will be the future in my opinion....hence the new Latvia

The Irish gave the bagpipes to the Scots as a joke, but the Scots haven't seen the joke yet.

If western european countries didn't have such amazing govt. welfare programs then Albania would've at least made to a semifinal of a major tourney.

Is this how Brazil won 3 world cups from 1958 to 1970?

I thought we were going to have a debate on whether or not Albania was the new Latvia......

Do you think they will qualify for the next world cup?

I'm not Scottish but they have a much better team than Latvia and I would say Albania also.

I doubt it. Latvia has qualified for a tournament in the 21st century. Something that Scotland hasn't done and probably will never do even with the expansions.

Scotland players lack very basic technique unfortunately. They are like English 4th division level.

Splitting the Albanian players between Kosovo and Albania will hurt both clubs in the long run.

Why don't these two countries just combine? That would make the most sense no? I mean isn't Kosovo supposed to just be a region of Albania? Why is it it's own country.

No they aren't because they're currently sitting in 3rd place in the group behind the likes of Spain and Italy but comfortably ahead of Israel and FYROM.

Nig-ga u trippin

Scotland are better than Latvia, but my Shipes would shit on them
Scotland haven't been decent in a long time, they are a shambles and lack basic technique as someone else said, among other issues

I believe in a Greater Albania and a Greater Romania. Even though they intersect lol

Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, part of Serbia and Greece are all Albania
