After arranging a friendly match with Norway, the Albanian Football Federation (AFF) has been looking for another national team in order to give to coach Christian Panucci the chance to test as many players as possible during November. Talks are currently underway with different national teams but negotiations with Slovakia are more advanced in this moment.
Pairs have already reached a consensus on the fact that this match will take place in Albania, while the only obstacle is Shevchenko's Ukraine which recently has made a similar offer to a friendly Slovak National Team.
If the agreement were to be finalized it would be the first time that Albania plays against Slovakia's National Team after several matches played with U-19 national team.
