Albania fans’ group told to stay away from World Cup qualifier

Albanian police have told a group of home fans to stay away from the World Cup qualifier against Italy on Monday.

Albanian police have told a group of home fans to stay away from the World Cup qualifier against Italy on Monday.

A statement Sunday said the Illyria Elite group was banned from the stadium in northern Albania after “problems” at Albania’s game in Italy in March. Italy won that game 2-0 which saw flares thrown on the field by a group calling itself Illyrian Elite.

With one round left, Spain has won Group G and second-place Italy is seven points ahead of Albania, which cannot qualify.
