Besart Berisha has been called-up for the Albanian squad as they prepare for the FIFA 2010 World Cup European Qualifying rounds.

This will be his first taste of International duty since suffering cruciate knee ligament damage while scoring for Albania in a 3-0 win over Malta in August 2007. An injury that saw Berisha sidelined for the whole of last season. He is still waiting to play his full debut for the Clarets and of course is currently on loan to Norwegian side, Rosenborg until January 2009.

Ironically, Albania face Malta in Tirana on Wednesday but first up are Sweden this Saturday at the same venue.
