NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 23/02/2017 Ben McKay

Striker Besart Berisha has stunned Melbourne Victory on the run-in to A-League finals by answering an international call from the country of his birth, Kosovo.

Berisha will head to Europe to represent the Balkan country in a World Cup qualifier against fellow minnows Iceland next month, leaving Victory without his services for a date against his former club, Brisbane Roar.

"For me it's a very exciting time ... I was born there and they need my help so I think it's time to go," Berisha said on Thursday.
