Albania cast their net wide and reap the dividends

“Albania has, for all of its footballing history, been a minnow, never qualifying for the finals of a major tournament once, or really ever coming close for that matter. Their largest margin of victory was a 5-0 result against Asian also-rans Vietnam in a friendly in 2003. Most of today’s best ethnic Albanian footballers are representing other national teams. During their last qualifying campaign for Euro 2012, Albania could only muster wins against bottom side Luxembourg and Belarus, flaming out of qualifying once again.” World Soccer
