Taulant Xhaka would have been desperate to make an impact for Albania against Switzerland, the country he was born in, on Saturday afternoon.
Not only was he playing against his ‘home’ country but he was also competing against his brother, Granit, who represents the Swiss national team.
The 25-year-old, who is 18 months older than his younger sibling, was subbed off in the 62nd minute and reacted by throwing a water bottle towards the dugout. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

It was a frustrated reaction from the eldest Xhaka, who was clearly bitterly disappointed to be hauled off with half an hour left to play.
Albania were 1-0 down at the time - Fabian Schar scored for Switzerland in the fifth minute - and down to 10 men after Lorik Cana’s inexplicable handball in the first half.

As for Granit, Arsenal fans will have been encouraged by the midfielder’s industrious performance.
Here are some of his best moments…
Albania could have sealed a point
Switzerland held on for a 1-0 win but Albania will have regrets after missing several decent opportunities to equalise.
Shkëlzen Gashi spurned the best chance. One-on-one with Yann Sommer in the closing minutes of the match, the Albanian substitute came out second best.
