The Albanian Football Federation (AFF) has formalized the opponent that will be faced by the Albanian National Team next November. Initially in the sports venues it was rumored that the accord with Norway was reached, but this hypothesis has already fallen down as Turkey will be the Albanias next rival. The match will be played on November 13 in Antalya.
AFF has adhered to the demand of Italian coach Panucci for only one friendly match despite the existence of two free days. The Italian coach will gather the team a few days ahead of the math starting the preparations.
Albania will play again a friendly match with Turkey after several years, while the last time that two teams battled with each other was during the World Cup 2006 qualifiers. In the face-to-face confrontations between Albania and Turkey, the balance stands in favor of the Turks, with 4 wins, 2 draws and only 3 victories for Albania.
