Every weekend there are several league games played around the world so each Monday I will post an article with all the goalscorers from the weekend including Friday. Since we have a lot of Albanians I have limited myself to only the first and second leagues, I have also excluded the domestic leagues in Balkan. I write about our women as well, however sometimes it is very difficult to find information about women’s football unfortunately so if I have missed a player I apologize in advance.
Vedat Muriqi (Giresunspor), 1 goal:
In the Turkish second division Giresunspor’s striker Vedat Muriqi celebrated Albania’s national day by scoring his first goal in the new team. The 20 year old prevented third placed Antalyaspor from collecting three points with his late goal. Antalyaspor took a 1-0 lead about an hour into the game but Kosovo born Muriqi equalized at the very end with his chest. Game ended 1-1 and Giresunspor are now 14th after 11 rounds.
There were no goalscorers on Saturday.
Shkelzen Gashi (FC Basel), 2 goals:
It was all eyes on Shkelzen Gashi yesterday when he scored two vital goals for Basel in their 2-1 win against FC Zürich. He gave Basel a 1-0 lead right before the break and home team Zürich managed to equalize through a penalty in the 88th minute. However Gashi got the final word when he scored the 2-1 goal five minutes later. Basel won and are still leading the Super League. Gashi has now scored 11 goals which makes him the top goal scorer so far, bare in mind that he won that title last season when he played for Grasshopper.
Samir Ramizi (FC Wohlen), 1 goal:
Last season FC Wohlen barely managed to stay in the Swiss second division, known as the Challenge League, but they’ve stepped up this season and it looks like captain Alban Pnishi is leading his boys towards the Super League. Wohlen remains on top of the league after last nights 2-0 win against Le Mont. Samiri Ramizi scored the first goal seven minutes into the game and two minutes later he could celebrate his team mate’s goal as well. This was 23 year old Ramizi’s 6th season goal in 17 rounds and he is now the top goals scorer out of all the Albanians in the Swiss second league together with Lugano’s Drilon Pacarizi.
Donjet Shkodra (Eendracht Aalst), 1 goal:
In Belgium Donjet Shkodra was the man of the match when he scored the only goal against Woluwe-Zaventem. 25 year old Shkodra was on Eendracht Aalst’s starting eleven and he needed 65 minutes to score against bottom placed Woluwe-Zaventem. This was goal number six for the midfielder, who was actually born in Kosovo’s capital Prishtina but grew up in Belgium.
Shpresa Aradini (Gütersloh), 2 goals:
With the help of Shpresa Aradini Gütersloh were able to smash Wolfsburg’s II in the German 2.Bundesliga’s North Chart. The home team Gütersloh won 5-1 and miss Aradini scored two goals. Gütersloh were choched when Wolfsburg took an early lead but they managed to get back in the game and turned it to a 3-1 lead during the halftime. With 30 minutes left of the game Aradini scored Gütersloh’s fourth goal and another 16 minutes later she ended the game with her second goal. Gütersloh won 5-1 and went home with another three points.

The small crowd at Hoffenheim’s arena got to witness a total of 11 goals when Frankfurt II came to visit yesterday. Valentina Limani was on the guests’ starting eleven and the 17 year old was able to score her debut goal as well. 2-2 was the result during halftime but Frankfurt took back the lead after the break and Limani scored Frankfurt’s 6th goal in the 83rd minute. Five minutes later miss Limani was replaced and Frankfurt won 7-4 which means they are still 5th in the South Chart.
