VALON BERISHA MADE history tonight, scoring Kosovo’s first goal on their competitive debut as they came from behind to draw 1-1 away to Finland in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Turku.

Berisha, a midfielder with Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg, brilliantly converted a penalty on the hour mark at the Veritas Stadium after Bernard Berisha had been fouled in the area.

The goal gave Kosovo a precious point in qualifying Group I after Paulus Arajuuri had put Finland in front from close range in the 18th minute.
