Southampton and Chelsea striker Armando Broja produced another brilliant, match-winning moment for Albania on Saturday evening.
He and his teammates were looking to keep themselves at the front of the race for a World Cup play-off place in Group I, where they are battling Poland and Hungary to finish second behind England.
This time around, Albania were locked in a goalless draw with Hungary and sent Broja on with 24 minutes remaining – a substitution that would pay off hugely once again.
As seen by the official clip from Southampton below, the key moment of the game came in the 79th minute. Broja received the ball on the right before driving directly at the Hungary defence, twisted and turned his way into the penalty area and struck a superb shot across goal and into the bottom corner from a tight angle.
Southampton must give Broja more time on the pitch after Albania displays
Broja now has three goals and two assists in his last three international appearances and is proving to be a key player in attack for his nation despite his tender age.
If Southampton are to make the most of having him for the season, they really do need to hand him more starts in the Premier League.
He is proving that his youthful exuberance and undoubted talent can combine to make him a potent goal threat in senior football and that is something that Saints have missed for the first part of this season.
The early signs are that Chelsea own a player capable of being world class in five years’ time, so Southampton must take their chance to play a part in this player’s story.
They are a club renowned for their development of young players and their role here could fast-track the progress of someone who has the potential to be one of the world’s best in the future.
