The Albanian National Team coach, Christian Panucci, talked about the friendly match with Turkey and his future plans during a press conference organized on Thursday. He said that a number of young players that may soon become part of the National Team are being currently monitored.
"I will gather the group on March 2018. There you may see some new players. It is of crucial importance for us to have a secure base for the group that will play in Euro 2020 qualifiers. I have already seen some players' videos and now I should see them in person. New players will surely join the National Team on March 2018," said Panucci.
He also expressed deep satisfaction for the team's performance in the last friendly match.
"I believe that the first half indicated the qualitative work done during the preparatory phase in Antalya. We played well in Turkey. The first half was qualitative while during the 2nd half we demonstrated our character despite playing with 10 players," said Panucci.
