The Albanian National Team coach Christian Panucci seemed optimist during the official press conference at the eve of the match with Spain on Friday evening. He declared in front of the Spanish journalists that Albania will take its chances in this challenge while accepting that the Iberian team is one of the best in the world.
"I expect a serious match. We did not come here to be victimized by Spain. We respect them and will show maximal seriousness in this match. Spain has an excellent team with a big name but we will do our best to become a problem for them," said the 44-years old coach.
In terms of the way in which he would chose to play during this match he said that the Albanian team will try to maximally exploit the counter-attack element.
"We will try to play with great courage, but not everything depends on us. Spain is a team that does not leave you much room to play due to the player's quality and the ball's possession most of the time. We will try to counter-attack and play with courage," confirmed Panucci.
Referring to the Pique issue he said that Barcelona's defender is a highly experienced player and will be able to administrate in the best possible way the situation generated during these last days.
