Nedim chose to represent Albania over Switzerland 

Nedim started his international career in 2013 with Switzerland U15. He then played with Switzerland U16, U17, U18, U19 and U21

After Nedim received Albanian citizenship on March 7, 2021, he decided he wanted to play for Albania

On March 9, 2021, Switzerland U21 manager Mauro Lustrinelli revealed that Nedim had chosen to represent his country of origin, Albania

Mauro said they made great efforts to convince Nedim to continue playing for Switzerland, but he made it clear to them that his heart beats stronger for his country of origin. 

He also added that identification is an important value when it comes to playing for the Switzerland national team so they had no choice but to let him go. 

However, the switch was not so easy. He was required to obtain permission from FIFA to make the switch. 

His request to play for Albania was initially rejected with a claim that he had played with Switzerland until he was 21. 

His case remained pending until the Albanian federation decided not to give up such an amazing player and pursued his file at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne

The case was submitted in June 2021, reviewed in August 2021, and then he was finally allowed to play for Albania on August 30, 2021

He made his debut with the Albania national team on September 5, 2021, in the FIFA World Cup qualification match against Hungary

He scored his first goal with Albania on June 17, 2023, in a Euro 2024 qualifying game against Moldova

What influenced Nedim to switch from Switzerland to Albania?

Nedim, in an interview, revealed that he received a call from Edi Reja. Edi asked him if he wanted to come and play for Albania

Nedim then talked with his family, and in the end, he chose Albania over Switzerland

Nedim said he had chosen Albania with his heart, and he was happy and proud to be Albanian and a part of the national team. 

There are many players whose country of origin is Albania but who were born in Switzerland play for Switzerland, like Xhaka, Shaqiri, Berhami, and others, but when he received a call for Euro 2024 from Switzerland, he said no. 

However, he received backlash from the fans at his debut game as he was not seen singing the national anthem of Albania and was standing still.
