In “Loro Borici” stadium of Shkoder, Kosovo’s national football side will face Croatia in the second qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup that will take place in Russia.

Kosovo will face a strong opponent, although the team will not have stars such as Luka Modric (Real Madrid) and Ivan Rakitic (Barcelona).

Kosovo’s coach, Albert Bunjaku is demanding a positive result in this match.

“We are well prepared and ready to face a bigger team with world class players”, Bunjaku said.

He added that his players are in good shape and according to him, Kosovo must give 120% for this match, which according to him, is a difficult one. “I think that quality doesn’t always win”, he said.

Ahead of the match with Kosovo, the Croatian coach, Ante Cacic said that Croatia is a stronger side and that quality is on their side. He says that they have well analyzed Kosovo’s side and that they will win, although he said that he respects Kosovo’s play and the team as a whole. /balkaneu.com/
