Kosovo call for Nuhiu

13 March 2018

Owls striker Atdhe Nuhiu has been selected to represent Kosovo in the coming international break.

The Wednesday forward will be in the squad for two friendly games that will take place in Paris later this month.

Kosovo face Madagascar at Stade Jean Rolland, Franconville on Saturday 24 March.

Three days later, Kosovo take on Burkina Faso at the same venue.

Nuhiu’s most recent call-up to the national squad last November saw the 28-year-old play a key role in a landmark victory for Kosovo.

Trailing 3-2 to Latvia, Kosovo hit back to win 4-3 with goals in the 86th and 94th minute to dramatically seal their first ever victory on home soil.

Nuhiu was introduced from the bench with 15 minutes remaining and helped force the equaliser.

His towering header on 86 minutes was pushed away from goal before team mate Elbasan Rashani followed up on the rebound.

Then, deep into stoppage time, Nuhiu controlled neatly in the box before cutting inside and sending a low strike past the goalkeeper and against the post before Besar Halimi smashed home the rebound.
