Starting in Kosovo’s 2022 World Cup qualifier against Sweden, the 26-year-old Biancocelesti forward played the full 90 minutes of the loss, not impressing as the side lost their first qualifying match of the campaign.

The 26-year-old Muriqi took two shots in the match, with neither being on target. He drew three fouls, was offside three times, made one cross, and picked up a yellow card for a foul after only six minutes.

His pass completion rate was only 71%, he completed two dribbles and he won four aerial duels, showing his consistent aerial dominance.
