PRISTINA, Kosovo -- Footballs newest country is hoping to be the surprise package of the World Cup qualifiers, just a few months after gaining FIFA membership. Packers Stitched Jerseys .Kosovo became a UEFA member in May, joined FIFA a week later and was fast-tracked into 2018 World Cup qualifying.It earned a credible 1-1 draw in Finland last month in its competitive international debut and is looking to spring more surprises against Croatia and Ukraine, even if coach Albert Bunjaki believes the European Championship in 2020 is a more realistic target.Kosovo plays Croatia on Thursday in Albanias northern city of Shkodra as it has no stadium certified by UEFA. It also plays on neutral territory three days later, with its away match against Ukraine being held in Poland as its opponent does not recognize Kosovo as an independent state.It will be a hard game, Kosovo coach Albert Bunjaki said in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday. We know that Croatia is a good team and after three days well play against Ukraine. But at the same time you know in football you can surprise.Weve started the qualification. Our goal is 2020. At the same time of course we will try to do the best in every game, so the next one is the Croatian national team. We will get the answer after the game. We will try to surprise them as we can.It was a far from easy match against Finland. Kickoff was less than five hours away when the sports governing body finally allowed six players who had represented other countries to switch their allegiance to Kosovo now the former province of Serbia is recognized as a football nation.Valon Berishas case was the last to be resolved and the former Norway international converted the penalty which secured Kosovo a point in Group I, putting it level with the other teams after both Croatia-Turkey and Ukraine-Iceland also ended 1-1.Its going to be hard for us because we just started up with this national team, Berisha said. We are a lot of new young players who dont know each other very well. I think it will take time until we form a really good group.We made a good first impression I think and we could have won the game against Finland. But now we are up against two really good international teams. It will be hard for us but we can surprise them because they might take us a little bit easy and it might go against them.Defender Leart Paqarada also believes Kosovo has the right mix of talented individuals to spring a surprise.Our team spirit is very well and we are well prepared for the game, he said. We have individual quality in the team and thats why I think maybe we can surprise somebody.---Llazar Semini in Tirana, Albania contributed to this report. Packers Jerseys Store .

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley stopped short Friday of giving quarterback Tyrod Taylor a vote of confidence that he will remain the teams starter next season.No, no, no, Whaley told WGR 550 when asked if any decision had been made about retaining Taylor for 2017. Weve said from Day 1 that were going to give him this whole season, and after that, well sit down with the coaches, the ownership group and make the decision.Now 26 games into his career as the Bills starting quarterback, Taylor has posted a 14-12 record but has seen a decline from last season in several key statistics, including completion percentage, yards per pass attempt, touchdowns and passer rating. Overall, the Bills average 181.5 passing yards per game, which ranks 32nd in the NFL.You got to look at the whole season, Whaley said. Hes got four more games to write this chapter. And then after this season, like everybody on the team, were going to do the evaluation, and well go from there. But this season is one of those things where hes done some things really good to get us to six wins. But just like everybody on the team, there are some plays that he wishes he could do over.As part of a contract extension signed in August, the Bills must guarantee Taylor $30 million if he remains on their roster past the fourth day of the 2017 league year, which begins in March. His performance this season has raised questions about whether the Bills will keep Taylor as their quarterback next season.After Taylor went 10-of-26 passing for 89 yards over the final three quarters of the Bills 38-24 loss Sunday to the Oakland Raiders, the quarterback appeared frustrated as he spoke to reporters at his regular Wednesday news conference.

Walking away from the podium after answering questions, Taylor threw down his practice jersey and said, Im done talking.Ive taken everything that yall have stood up here and asked me, right in the chest, he said during the news conference. It doesnt affect me emotionally or physically. I take that every week. Whoever yall want to blame, Ill take that. Like I said, my job is to get the team into a position where we can win Sundays. Can I be better, yes? But it doesnt just take me; its a collective effort out there on the field, each and every Sunday.At 6-6, the Bills have an 8 percent chance of making the postseason, according to ESPNs Football Power Index. They host the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday before ending their regular season with games against the Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.Taylors struggles and the Bills declining postseason chances have raised speculation that rookie third-stringer Cardale Jones, a fourth-round pick, could see time at quarterback, but Whaley shot down that idea Friday.I would not [like to see him play], Whaley told WGR 550. That means something terrible happened, and were not looking for that. What were looking for is to come out Sunday and get a W against the Steelers.
