Coach Iordanescu has some key absences like talented goalkeeper Radu (Bournemouth), the captain central defender Chiricheș (Steaua) and the talented winger Mann (Parma). Kosovo showed a competitive face in the 2-2 home draw with Switzerland in Primoz Gliha’s debut on the bench. They gave possession of the ball and “hit” the open field with the fastest forwards, while faced serious problems on the left side of the defense.
