Kosovo plays first match of the European Championship 2024 qualifiers under Slovenian management: Primož Gliha scores against Switzerland in dramatic fashion
Primož Gliha may not have been able to break the seven-match winless streak, but the Slovenian expert can still be satisfied with the way his first match on the bench for Kosovo in the qualifiers for the Euro 2024. The latter took on Switzerland at the Fadil Vokrri Stadium in Pristina in front of 12,700 spectators, and surprisingly came out on top against a favoured opponent. It ended 2:2, with Vedat Muriqi being the hero of the team led by Primož Gliha. The Mallorca forward scored both goals for Kosovo, the second in 94. one minute of clearing.
“It’s definitely something special to come back from behind twice against a team like Switzerland and end up with a point. But it would have been even better if we hadn’t fallen behind twice… Something we will have to change,” said 55-year-old Primož Gliha. In June, the latter replaced the French Alain Giresse on Kosovo’s bench, effectively returning to the bench where he had been sitting. In November 2021, he was only a temporary solution for the matches against Jordan (0:2) and Greece (1:1), but now he has been offered a five-month contract by the Kosovo Football Federation, or until the end of the Euro 2024 qualifiers. Kosovo has no real chance here, still winless after five games and last in Group I.
