Only two sides at Euro 2016 have zero major tournament experience.

One is Iceland but the other is Albania. The latter nation has never qualified for a major tournament and even went seven years between 1973 and 1980 where they played just one senior international match.

They are the least well-known team at Euro 2016 with few players being on most people's radars.

But they are very interesting when you look closely. Michael Fahey of No-Yolo has been to the country and joined us on a mid-week Team 33 special to take us through the Albania, a qualification campaign which owed a bit to a drone incident, drawing on the wider Albanian diaspora and a team on the up.

From key players to their chances of progressing from a group featuring Switzerland, Romania and hosts France, Fahey filled in the blanks about a newcomer to football's top table.
