Who is Albania coach?

Former Arsenal and Barcelona left back Sylvinho took charge of Albania in January 2023, and the Brazilian has subsequently guided the nation to only their second ever EURO finals, the first being in 2016. Previously Sylvinho had spells as a coach at French Ligue 1 side Lyon and Brazilian team Corinthians.

Albania key player: Berat Djimshiti

The imposing Atalanta centre-back adds defensive solidity and leadership, with his aerial prowess, tactical intelligence and strength in the tackle making Djimshiti a commander at the back. His top-level experience in Serie A is also an asset, inspiring confidence among team-mates. Indeed, Djimshiti's presence brings a composure which could prove vital for Sylvinho's squad.

Albania one to watch: Ernest Muçi

Despite having played only nine times for Albania by May, Muçi inspires great expectations given his skillset and versatility. Renowned for his pace, technical prowess and ability to create goalscoring chances, the Beşiktaş forward is a dynamic force. With his knack for producing decisive moments in front of goal, Muçi could prove a key performer in Germany.

How did Albania qualify for EURO 2024?
