Chelsea striker Armando Broja has no regrets about snubbing England at international level, as he lines up for Albania in their World Cup qualifier against England.

The 19-year-old is a hot prospect for Chelsea, playing on loan at Vitesse.

“It is a big decision, of course, when you choose your country to play for,” Broja told Goal.

“I went for it because I have got Albanian blood in me, I am Albanian, my parents are Albanian so it was an easy decision.

“I thought I would love to make the people there proud and make my parents proud. I wanted to lift Albania up as a country to get us to the World Cup or Euros. That’s the biggest thing for them.

“If we got to the World Cup, it would be crazy and we would make history. We have never got there before so it would be something crazy as a country, you know.

“I have a lot of family in Albania and I visited there every year so it is really a big part of my life.”

Broja will earn his fifth international appearance if he takes part against the Three Lions and will hope to bag a memorable first goal.
