Albania drop tardy Strakosha

Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha missed his flight and was cut from the Albania squad as punishment by Coach Christian Panucci.

The shot-stopper was reportedly held up by the notorious traffic in Rome and didn’t get to the airport in time.

Despite assuring Panucci and the Albania team organisers that he’d get the very next flight to Tirana, Strakosha was informed he should not bother turning up to the training camp.

He’ll therefore not take part in the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Andorra and Turkey.

It was particularly painful for him, as today is Strakosha’s 24th birthday.
