As we said, this eliminatory round revealed a new "star", Armando Broja, a player who can become the leader of the group in the next eliminators, a footballer who has the parameters of the English Premier League and with increasing potential, who will 'worth the team consistently.

Our national team has a positive performance in the League of Nations. In the last edition, Albania was in League C and managed to win the group. Thus, since it closed at the top, this edition has been promoted to League B, where the level of teams is higher. National League such as Sweden, Ukraine, Russia or Slovenia participate in League B. Everything will be revealed on December 16, when Albania will recognize the rivals it will have in the group. While the connection between this competition and the European 2024, the possibility to go to the European through the League of Nations has not been made known yet, as UEFA has not published the format of "Euro 2024". The national team in the next qualifying editions will try harder, as this group has quality and young age. With players like Broja, Çokaj, Bajrami and others, there are good chances to achieve the goal.
