Player to watch – Armando Broja

After scoring against Liechtenstein earlier in the week, Armando Broja will be hoping to cement himself in the starting eleven with another goal here. The 22 year old featured for both Chelsea and Fulham in the 2023/24 Premier League.

Broja ready to make his mark

While his physicality may be his main strength, Armando Broja will feel as though he’s ready to step up and start delivering more goals for both club and country. He struggled at both Chelsea and Fulham this term, clocking up just 538 Premier League minutes and scoring only once. He has though registered a goal in 25% of his Albania appearances.
