Change of venue

This Saturday, Albania and Israel were supposed to play in Loro Borici stadium in Shkoder for the World Cup qualifying, European zone. At the last minute the venue was altered to Elbasan Arena in Elbasan. The reason is a terrorist threat.
Albania's FA spokesperson Tritan Kokona did not want to give an explanation of this 'sudden' shift, but it is speculated that this has to do with recent arrest of four people in the country. Lately, the newspaper 'Panorama' published a report that terrorists are preparing to strike the Israeli team. From those four detained two of them, a doctor and a barber who both lived in Shkoder, were planning to carry out the attack. 'Panorama' claim that in their houses police found explosives for the assault.
