It's a blunder that will enter the legend of the Stade de France. The match between the Blues and Albania on Saturday night in qualifying for Euro 2020, was delayed several minutes after an improbable mistake on the Albanian anthem. Indeed, it is not the hymn of the selection of Balkans that sounded ... but that of Montenegro! The Albanian fans, furious, loudly whistled. Then, after the broadcast of the Marseillaise, the players of Albania refused to start the meeting until their anthem was not played.
The speaker apologizes to the supporters ... of Armenia!
After a few minutes of hesitation, the French stadium announcer apologized ... to supporters of Armenia. No, no, it's not a joke, we assure you. The Albanian anthem (the good one, this time) finally sounded in the Stade de France. The meeting began with seven minutes late. And with probably a good laugh for many viewers.
