At the beginning of the season, nobody really knew Albert Bunjaku. He was not a recognisable figure untilr ecently in the football. In particular he was not known as a good goal-scorer. But during the last months he did everything to improve and it has paid dividends! Now many clubs are interested in the striker. But what about the next World Cup? Is Albert Bunjaku an option for coach Ottmar Hitzfeld?

His great strength is that he is very athletic. If he is in a good mood, he is very difficult to tame. A good example is his recent hat-trick against Hannover 96. But he is not just a fighter, but also a player with technical qualities as well. That is why he is so important for Nuremberg.

However, he also is dependent on the support of the other players in his team. If they are not having a good match, he is often also unremarkable - he lacks the ability to creat opportunities for himself.

It will be interesting, how he behaves during the World Cup, and if he will be utilised by Ottmar Hitzfeld as it will be his first experience at an international level.
