French President Macron apologizes to Albania on Incorrect anthem at Football game

Albania’s prime minister claims French President Emmanuel Macron has apologized to him following the wrong national anthem has been played before a European Championship qualifier between both nations on Saturday.

Edi Rama tweeted Sunday that Macron voiced”his sincere apology to its scandalous gaffe of the French Football Federation together with all our National Flag anthem!”

France won the Group H match in Paris 4-1.

Albanian players seemed bemused — and lovers mad — when Andorra’s anthem was performed rather than Albania’s.

The beginning of the game was postponed for approximately ten minutes, and the ideal anthem subsequently played.

Another incident happened when the arena announcer merged up Armenia — that isn’t in precisely the same group — together with Albania.
