To all my non-Albanian followers. Today is a historic day for us I literally cannot wait until the start whistle goes at 7:45pm. Some of you may think ‘It’s just a football game’ but your wrong. This means so much more than a football game. We’re playing Serbia, a country that has for years and years promoted Albanophobia/Anti-Albanian feeling/behaviour. For DECADES they oppressed Kosovar-Albanians, they treated us like second class citizens during the time which Kosovo was occupied by Former Yugoslavia. In Prishtina (Kosovo’s capital) during the 1980/90s when people and students would PEACEFULLY protest against the oppressive Serb government, they sent police to Prishtina to KILL those protesting. In the war from 1998-1999 they drove out ONE MILLION Kosovar-Albanians from OUR LAND! They destroyed our homes and mosques (There were 155 destroyed mosques in Kosovo in August 1999, 40% of all residential houses in Kosovo were heavily damaged or completely destroyed by the end of the war, more than 80% of the houses in Pejë were damaged or destroyed) they raped at least 20,000 Kosovar-Albanian girls and women, they committed numerous massacres. They committed GENOCIDE! Serbia planned the genocide and violated our human rights! Most deny this to this day or act proud. In last years game in Belgrade they booed our National Anthem, they chanted ‘Kill, Kill Albanians’ ‘Slaughter, Slaughter Albanians’ ‘Kill the Croatians so the Albanian doesn’t have a brother’ When chanting these obscene things they didn’t use the Serbian word for Albanian, they used a racist slur referring to Albanians, the hooligans attacked a player with a CHAIR before our captain took him down and punched him (well done Lorik!) They disrespected our flag! So don’t say that this is just a football game because it’s so much more than that! Today is historic for us. And to those of you saying it’s no big deal and that 'It’s only football.’ SHUT UP BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND why! And to my fellow Albanians - Sontë do te jet fitore jo veç per futboll por edhe per Shqiperia, Kosova, Ilirida, Malësia, Lugina ë Preshevës. Për gjithe Shqiperi Etnike! Në jemi Kuq e Zi, në jemi Shqiptar, në jemi Evropian.🇽🇰🇦🇱
