Dobra Training With Full Albania Squad
Friday, 27th May 2022 21:57

Town forward Armando Dobra is training with the full Albania squad.

The Albanians began a training camp in Durrës today with coach Edy Reja having asked Dobra and six other U21 regulars who have caught his eye to join the 28-man party.

The seven are due to remain with the squad until the U21s assemble ahead of their summer fixtures but they could work their way into Reja’s plans ahead of the senior matches.

Albania take on Iceland away on Monday 6th June and then Israel at home four days later in Nations League qualifiers, before a home friendly against Estonia on Monday 13th June.

The U21s have European Championships qualifiers against England at Chesterfield on Tuesday 7th June and at home to Kosovo on Monday 13th June.

Dobra has won 10 caps at U21 level but has not previously been involved with the senior side.

The forward, who spent a frustrating spell on loan at Colchester during 2021/22, is contracted to the Blues to the summer of 2023 with the club having an option for a further season.

There is a player in there.
I feel he probably will flourish but he may need to leave us to do so.

Odd that he is good enough for Albania, but not Colchester.

Ipswichbusiness. The main reason he didn't play for col utd, 2nd half of season was that they had 6 loan players. So guess they had players in more important positions for them than dobra. Especially as they were in a relegation fight for much of the season. Also,apparently, he wasnt that great for them. Had a few good games but didn't pull up any trees. So put the 2 things together, he didn't get picked. Shame, as playing regularly would likely have improved him.

i liked Dobra , he was always keen to play prior to his spell with Colchester, can be a livewire ,but think he may come up a bit short of whats required at the moment. Would like to see him do well .

With Dobra and a few of our squad, it’s almost impossible not to be harsh with an opinion. Maybe not meant to be at Ipswich. I hope they will thrive elsewhere

He's still very young and developing as a player. ColU wasn't the right place for him to get regular first team action. I wouldn't be surprised if he has another half season on loan elsewhere and around January KMcK can check his progress and decide what's best for his development..

What ever way you dress this up he has failed to live up to expectations and with McKenna building an stronger squad for next season he looks way off the pace.
