The Albanian National Team staff is alarmed only two weeks ahead of the important challenges against Spain and Italy. The numerous players' absence is the motive behind this tensed situation in the Red and Black camp. Odds are that coach Christian Panucci will find himself obligated to experiment with the line-up in these matches.
The absence of Abrashi, Gjimshiti and Ajeti due to injuries experienced last weekend may add to the absences of Kukeli, Roshi and Mavraj due to previous suspensions.
Amir Abrashi left the field in the 28th minute during the Bundesliga match between Bayer Leverkusen and Freiburgand the first signs indicate that it could be a serious injury. Meanwhile Berat Gjimshiti has suffered an injury, which has left off the list of Benevento players for the match against Napoli. Even Arlind Ajeti experienced some serious problems during Crotone-Inter match last Saturday.
Furthermore, with Balaj injured and Agolli still in a recovery phase thing become even more difficult for Panucci who will now hope for a last-minute recovery.
