June 13, 2015 - Ergys Kace scores in win over France
"A brilliant free kick just before half-time was enough to seal an impressive victory for the home side. Ergys Kace's stunning free kick condemned France to another friendly defeat as they lost 1-0 to Albania on Saturday." - Goal

March 29, 2015 - Mergim Mavraj & Shkelzen Gashi score in win over Armenia
"Shkelzen Gashi's header has given Albania a crucial 2-1 victory at home to Armenia in Group I of the Euro 2016 qualification tables. Armenia stunned the home side when they took the lead in the fifth minute, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan's cross was diverted into his own goal by Mergim Mavraj.... It took a while for Albania to wake up but when they did, they really threatened. Sokol Cikalleshi struck the post with a left footed shot, before Lorik Cana missed a header from a few yards out. In the second half Armenia were reduced to ten men when Hovhannes Hambardzumyan was shown a second yellow card, and Albania capitalised as Mavraj powered in a header from a corner, before Gashi's header secured the win." - Sports Mole

September 7, 2014 - Bekim Balaj scores in upset of Portugal
"A superb volley from Bekim Balaj earned Albania a stunning 1-0 win over Portugal in their Euro 2016 qualifying opener on Sunday. Gianni De Biasi's men started the game as heavy underdogs against a side widely expected to dominate Group I, but they left Aveiro with all three points as Balaj stole the show on a memorable night for the visitors.... But Albania also carried a threat and after racing out of the blocks brightly after the restart, they were rewarded in the 52nd minute when Balaj thumped Odise Roshi's delivery past Rui Patricio for the winner." - Goal
