Edy Reja, the coach of the Albanian National Team, spoke after the goalless draw in the friendly against Wales. In a statement after the match, the Italian coach said:
I liked them all. Seferi had little space, but fought hard. Balaj played well in the first half. Manajn with the ball is very good, he is one of the best strikers we have. Overall I liked all four attackers. I also want to emphasize the fact that Selmani was a debutant, but he made a very good appearance.
In tactical terms all defenders did well. Sure we could have made some small mistakes on the way out, but overall we did well. We have to keep in mind that we played against very good players.
They did a lot of pressing, they are very strong physically. The only mistake was suffering in the counterattack part. In the character aspect we showed great things. If we had more confidence when we started the action, we would do even better.
