Luis Hasa: The Rising Star Who Chooses Albania Over Italy

  Another major piece of news has come for Albania in the world of football: Luis Hasa, one of the brightest young talents from Juventus and a former star of Italy's U-19 team, has decided to play for the Albanian national team, at least this is how most Albanian media reports. This significant decision for Hasa and Albania follows a series of his successes with Italy's youth teams.

Luis Hasa became a key player in Italy U-19's triumph at the European Championship for this age group. In the final, he provided a crucial assist that led to the 1-0 victory against Portugal, while in the semi-final, he contributed two assists in the 2-3 victory against Spain. For his outstanding performance, UEFA named him the best player of the tournament.

This talented footballer, who has also debuted with Juventus' first team, is considered one of the most promising talents of the Bianconeri. Luis Hasa has played for all age groups of the Italian national team up to U-21. But now, he has decided to wear the red and black jersey of Albania.

His decision was confirmed by the head of the Albanian Football Federation (FSHF), Armand Duka, in an interview with Italian media. “Luis Hasa will be an Albania player; he will not play for Italy,” Duka declared. This makes it clear that Hasa will be part of the Albanian national team, a significant gain for Albanian football.

Luis Hasa, the 20-year-old who has played for Juventus since he was eight, comes from an Albanian family that emigrated to Italy. His father, Arbeni, has spoken about the sacrifices and dedication of the family to support his son's career. “At first, I didn't think he could reach very high, but then when I saw that he could become a good player, it was worth everything,” said Arbeni.

Arbeni Hasa also mentioned that they hadn't received an official offer from Albania until now, but Luis Hasa is now officially an Albanian player. It remains to be seen whether he will join Albania's senior national team or the U-21 team.

This is a historic moment for Albanian football, which, following a successful qualification for the European Championship in Germany with coach Silvinho, is attracting more and more talents from the diaspora. Luis Hasa's decision to play for Albania is a testament to the strength and potential that the red and black team offers to young and talented players.
