Kosovo Marks Its First Victory on the Pitch

By: Valon Xoxa    September 9, 2014

With Kosovo winning against Oman and Albania coming back triumphant from Portugal, Kosovars have had one great football evening. This day has been especially an important one for the Kosovar National Team, for it marks the first victorious match in the History of the team.

After being granted permission by FIFA to play international games in January, Kosovo set its first game against Haiti in March and later went on to challenge Turkey and Senegal in May.
