FIFA clears two former Albania players to suit up for Kosovo

Besart Berisha has been cleared to play for Kosovo.

FIFA has cleared two former Albania players to represent Kosovo in a World Cup qualifying match on Saturday.

FIFA says Besart Berisha, a forward with Melbourne Victory, and defender Mergim Vojvoda, of Belgian club Mouscron, had their applications approved to change national-team allegiance.

Kosovo-eligible players played for other countries before the Balkan republic became members of UEFA and FIFA in May.

The 31-year-old Berisha played for Albania's senior team a decade ago, and Vojvoda recently represented the Albanian under-21 team.

Kosovo plays their fourth World Cup qualifier at Turkey in Antalya on Saturday. They are last in six-team Group I with one point from three matches.
