Gjokaj Features In Albania Win

6 March 2014

On loan Derby County defender helps Albania seal 1-3 win over Switzerland.

Albania moved off the foot of UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 4 with a 1-3 win over Switzerland.

On loan Derby County defender Valentin Gjokaj played the entire 90 minutes as Albania shocked second-placed Switzerland to double their points tally for the campaign.

Enis Kavazaj opened the scoring with 19 minutes played before captain Vasil Shkurtaj doubled their lead with a fine finish on the stroke of half-time. 

Herolind Shala's superb solo goal goal in the 57th minute sealed the points with Michael Gregoritsch converting a late consolation from the spot after Gjokaj conceded a penalty kick. 

Gjokaj will now return to The Hive ahead of Saturday's match against Gateshead.
