The sole Port Vale connection with Euro 2016

They may be unheralded but unsung Albania will boast a recent former Port Vale player in their ranks.

Defender Freddie Veseli played for the ValiantsĀ in 2015 making 22 appearances and scoring once.

However, he turned down an offer of a contract by Vale and decided to join Swiss side Lugano instead.

In November 2015, Veseli who has dual Swiss and Albanian nationality made his International debut for Albania and now has three senior caps to his name.

He was named in Albania’s 24 man squad for the Euro championships and ironically he could line up against Switzerland, where his side Lugano are based, in the first match of the tournament.
