BOTH GRANIT XHAKA AND XERADAN SHAQIRI COULD FACE F.I.F.A ACTION FOR POLITICAL CELEBRATIONS.
The two footballers Granit xahka and xeredan Shaqiri who are from originally from Kosovo, a break up Yugoslavia ., but both play for Switzerland. Now both of them are going to face action from F.I.F.A. F.I.F.A rules clearly state that footballers , clubs and countries can not use signs ,flags , ribbons for their political gains on the pitch or at the stadium either. Barcelona have faced the wrath of F.I.F.A for flying the Catalunya flag at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola was fined and banned for wearing the yellow ribbons as a sign of support for imprisoned Catalonians. Now at the 2018 world cup in Russia Switzerland came back from one goal down to a 2-1 win. And both of them scored goals, but what has caught the eye of F.I.F.A here is that both f these footballes ceebrated their goals with the sign of the Albanian flag,which is the black eagle on the Albanian flag. Secondly shaquiri has the Kosovo flag on his right boot as well. Now Granit xahka's father Ragip spent three and a half years in prison for the Kosovo freedom. Serbia does not recognise Kosovo as a country.
