The day before a game, the teams will train on the pitch ahead of the match itself. Sometimes we have a police escort to and from the stadium, other times we don’t. Although there were no incidents, in this instance it was the former. Mostly, it’s just about navigating traffic rather than anything untoward.
The stadium itself is nice, having been renovated in the last couple of years or so since Kosovo was admitted to the ranks of FIFA and UEFA. You can see more via the video below.
I’m looking forward to the game itself now very much.
