Macedonia: Swiss footballers spark wild celebrations with Albanian hand-gesture

Macedonia's Albanian minority celebrated goals by footballers Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka, both Swiss players of Albanian heritage, in their last-minute 2-1 victory over Serbia, in Skopje on Saturday. The pair made an eagle sign with their hands, alluding to Albania's flag. The Kosovo War of 1998-9 pitted Serbia against the Albanian separatists. The capital's streets were flooded with... Еще people chanting, burning flares and waving Albanian flags. Xherdan Shaqiri struck a 90th minute winner, the result now leaves Switzerland in a strong position to qualify after their hard-fought draw against Brazil in their opening match, while Serbia face an uphill battle after the South Americans defeated Costa Rice earlier in the day.
