A blow to the Swiss Under-21 team, which is preparing to play in the European Nations Championship at the end of the month: it will have to do without the services of Nedim Bajrami, who had signed eight appearances and scored one goal in the ten matches of the qualifying phase. The attacking midfielder of Empoli (Italian Serie B) is not injured. He just decided to wear the Albania jersey.
“We have made great efforts to convince Nedim to continue playing for Switzerland,” said Nati coach Mauro Lustrinelli. However, he made it clear to us that his heart was beating harder for Albania. Identification is a crucial value when it comes to playing for the Swiss national team. That’s why we had no choice but to let him go. ”
