The first time I ever really understood the draw of soccer was living in Chile. When the national team won, everyone would take to the streets in celebration. I never got into the game, but I loved being surrounded in their joy.
Albania, turns out, is no different. Last night the team beat Armenia to get into the Euro 2016 Finals group. First time ever!! Today, the country is celebrating.
Granted, now, the people hanging out of cars with their flags looks more dangerous to me then in did in Chile when I was 16. Ahh, how time changes us!
Good luck Albania!
