Albania’s players refused to play towards France after the flawed national anthem was played before kick-off of their Euro 2020 qualifier on Saturday.
As Albania’s players lined up to hear their anthem the look of confusion on their faces stated all of it as Andorra’s national anthem was belted out on the Stade de France.
Albania’s players appeared puzzled, whereas others shook their heads as nobody appeared to let the organisers know that they had made a mistake.
The Albanian followers contained in the Stade de France made their ideas clear as they jeered and whistled while Andorra’s anthem was being played.
To make issues worse, when the appropriate national anthem was tracked down and about to be played the stadium announcer stated: ‘Please respect the Armenia national anthem.’
