Bekim Balaj will return in the Albanian National Team ranks after a nearly 12-months absence. The Shkodra born player, who currently plays for Akhmat Grozny in Russian Super-League, will join the group of players chosen by Coach Christian Panucci for a friendly match with Norway on March 26 in 'Elbasan Arena'.
This news has not yet been officially confirmed because Panucci's list has not been divulged so far.
Balaj was absent in the Albania's team ranks since a friendly match with Bosnia-Herzegovina on March 28, 2017. His absence was related to some physical problems but everything seems to have been left behind and the player is ready to contribute for his team.
