FIFA have granted Kosovo permission to play against full member nations who recognise them as an independent state, but any matches that take place will not be considered a legitimate international fixture.
Januzaj was born in Brussels, but his family has Kosover-Albanian roots, meaning he does have the lineage to represent Kosovo.
“I was born there and I would like my son to play for the national team of my country, but the matter is delicate, because the Kosovo FA is not yet a member of FIFA,” Abedin Januzaj told Kosovan TV station, Kohavision.
“Maybe one day Adnan will play for Kosovo, but for now, this will not happen. And we have a lot of time to think about everything,” he added.
