Sweden calls up Arber Zeneli to the Euro Cup 


Arber Zeneli’s success in the Swedish League has not gone unnoticed. Born in 1995, the midfielder has currently scored four goals in 11 games for Elfsborgs IF and now he has been called up to Sweden’s U21 team as they will compete in the Euro Cup.

Coach Håkan Ericson presented the entire squad on Tuesday evening and Zeneli is the only player that has not participated in the qualification. There were some tough competition but the coach was really impressed by the 20-year-old Albanian.

“Arber has had a very interesting spring in Elfsborg. We have few players of his type and I am mostly referring to his speed and offence play. “ – Coach Håkan Ericson to Sweden’s website. 

Zeneli is actually one of the youngest Albanian in Sweden’s Allsvenskan but he is the one that has scored the most goals out of the Albanians we have. He started the season with a bang, found the net as soon as the season started in April and he scored all his four goals that same Month. He has to play another two rounds with Elfsborg before it’s all eyes on the Euro Cup.

The U21 Euro Cup is going to take place in Czech Republic and will kick off on June 18th. Sweden will take on Italy, England and Portugal in the first group stage. Coach Ericson’s boys men are gathered on Monday and they will play a friendly against Riza Durmisi‘ Denmark that same week as a warm up.
