Shpëtim Moçka (born 20 October 1989 in Vlorë) is a professional Albanian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Teuta Durrës in the Albanian Superliga.[1]

Club career[edit]

Flamurtari Vlorë[edit]

Moçka was promoted to the Flamurtari first team from the U-19s by Eqerem Memushi before the start of the 2007–08 season at the age of just 17 following the departures of Estref Billa and Erjon Dine.

His first league game in a red and black shirt came in round 5 of the Albanian Superliga against Dinamo Tirana on 28 September 2007. Moçka played well to keep a clean sheet against prolific strikers such as Sebino Plaku and Pero Pejic which helped his team win the game away from home 1–0 against a strong Dinamo side.[2][3] During his first 3 games the young goalkeeper managed 3 clean sheets against Dinamo Tirana, Partizani Tirana and Shkumbini Peqin

Apolonia Fier[edit]

After falling out of favour with the coach Shkëlqim Muça, Moçka was loaned out to fellow Albanian Superliga side Apolonia Fier for the remainder of the 2011–12 season on 27 February 2012.[4]

Kastrioti Krujë[edit]

Following his loan return to Flamurtari Vlorë from Apolonia Fier, on 25 July 2012 he signed for Kastrioti Krujë. He became the club's first choice goalkeeper for the 2012–13 campaign ahead of Alfred Osmani, and he made 19 league appearances, as well as scoring a goal from the penalty spot in a 4–1 win over his previous club Apolonia.[5] He also made 4 Albanian Cup appearances to help his side reach the quarter finals.

Return at Flamurtari Vlorë[edit]

Moçka returned to his first club Flamurtari Vlorë ahead of the 2013–14 season and following the departure of Enea Koliqi to Iraklis Thessaloniki he became the club's first choice goalkeeper ahead of Klodian Xhelilaj. He played in 24 league games in a season where the club struggled in the Albanian Superliga and only managed to finish 7th in the league. He also made 5 cup appearances in a successful cup winning campaign, but he was overlooked for the final against Kukësi as the manager Ernest Gjoka decided to choose Klodian Xhelilaj instead.[6]

Teuta Durrës[edit]

In August 2015, Moçka signed for one season with Teuta Durrës for an undisclosed fee,[7] and was given number 12 for the 2015–16 season.[8]

International career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Moçka in action against Austria on 9 September 2009.

Moçka was regularly called to the Albania under-21 team by then coach Artan Bushati for the qualifying phrase of 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Championship where Albania was placed in the Group 10.[9] He established himself as the starting goalkeeper by playing six out of eight matches throughout the campaign. He made his competitive debut on 28 March 2009 in the 0–1 home defeat to Scotland, as Albania started the qualifiers with a loss.[10] Moçka kept his first clean sheet with the under-21 side on 5 September 2009 in the matchday 3 against Azerbaijan, helping the team to win 1–0 for the first three points of the Group 10.[11]

Following the 3–1 away defeat to Austria in the matchday 4,[12] Moçka was benched in favour of Ibrahim Bejte for the clash against Belarus, which finished in a 4–2 away defeat.[13] He returned to the goal for the next match against Austria on 13 November, where he helped the team to grab a point after a 2–2 draw at Qemal Stafa Stadium.[14] He was dropped again in the bench for the penultimate match against Belarus, which ended in a 2–1 home defeat,[15] but returned in Albania's 2–1 defeat to Azerbaijan in the last qualifying match.[16] Albania finished the Group 10 in the penultimate spot with four points.[17]

Senior[edit]

On 17 February 2010, Moçka played his first match with senior side, an unofficial friendly against Kosovo, where entered as a substitute for Ilion Lika in a eventually 2–3 win.[18][19] Two years later, he was called up again by the new coach Gianni De Biasi for the friendlies against Qatar and Iran,[20] but he remained on the bench for both matches, won by Albania.[21][22]
