You would never have guessed as the 21-year-old was in electric form on Saturday, regularly tearing Cambridge United’s defence to shreds as he scored the first and laid on the second.
He said: “I think Albania took it out of everyone. One of the Cambridge boys came as well and it was a long few days for us.”
