Albania The Dream Becomes Real

Hello and wellcome to my first story . I've decided to choose my national team Albania and hopefully we will qualify in the Euro 2016 .

I'll try my best to update this story daily , we are in the final month of the school , and we have more exams . However School is more important and i need to focus in that more than in this story .

Who will I be playing as?

Current Albanian manager De Biasi

On 14 December 2011, De Biasi was named as the successor to Josip Kuže in charge of the Albanian national side.

De Biasi, a midfielder, started his professional playing career for Inter Milan; he was part of the first team squad but, despite this, never played for the nerazzurri and was then loaned to Serie C team Reggiana in 1975 and newly promoted Serie A club Pescara Calcio one year later.

In 2005, Torino F.C. of Serie B appointed De Biasi as head coach, offering him a squad quickly built in a very few days following the cancellation of the old Torino Calcio club and the forming of a new society, owned by Urbano Cairo. Under De Biasi, Torino obtained immediate Serie A promotion, after having defeated Mantova on play-offs . After several rumours regarding a possible move to La Liga side Levante UD, he was announced on 9 October 2007 to have reached an agreement with the Spanish side, where he will join fellow Italians Damiano Tommasi, Christian Riganò, Marco Storari and Bruno Cirillo .
Nice Start; be interesting to see how you get on with Albania
@TodayAtTomorrow : Thanks .

De Biasi :"We have a squad that can qualify for the World Cup "

Albania's manager De Biasi has told the press this morning that he believes the current Albanian squad 'can qualify the World Cup'.

The main focal point in this conference was about Albania's chances of qualifying in the World Cup this year, with reporters from Sky Sports asking De Biasi the following question:

"De Biasi, how far do you reckon this squad that they can qualify in the World Cup?"

De Biasi replied :

"I believe we have a very good chance to qualify in this World Cup. This squad is so good to qualfy in the World Cup . In trainings the players showed their qualities . We have two or three players who can fill a position if it becomes vacant which will really help us. I will be visiting some games to keep an eye on some players who could possibly make me to select them . I have a lot of time to decide and I won't rush into it."

All we know is that it will be a very tough decision for De Biasi to make, and with only 23 slots available to select , De Biasi will have to choose which players he will leave out of the squad.

Albania annouce their players for the next two matches

Albania has annouced their 23 players that will play against Cyprus and Norway .
