Kosova will host the Faroe Islands on Saturday in an international friendly at the Pristina City Stadium. The hosts head into Wednesday’s match on the back of a 2-2 draw against Armenia, while the Czech Republic thrashed the Faroe Islands 5-0 on the same day. Both sides have never qualified for a World Cup final, and they will not feature in the 2022 edition of the tournament, to be held in Qatar. Kosovo finished bottom of Group B in the UEFA qualifiers, while the visitors managed only a fourth-place finish in Group F.

Kosovo had a decent Nations League campaign as they managed to finish second in League C Group 2, collecting nine points from six games, six points clear of group-winners Greece. The Dardanians’ last competitive action in late September saw them defeat Cyprus 5–2. Last time in a friendly against Armenia, Kosovo came from behind twice to draw. Zirayar Shagoyan’s opener was canceled out from the penalty spot by Lirim Kastrati. Kamo Hovhannisyan restored Armenia’s lead ten minutes from time, and just when it looked like the Mountaineers might seal victory, Donat Rudhani’s 93rd-minute strike equalized.
On the other hand, the Faroe Islands won five times against the Czech Republic on Wednesday. It was his first defeat since the beginning of June. The national team ended their Nations League campaign in late September with an impressive 2–1 win over Turkey. Goals from Viljörmur Davidson and Jon Edmondsson helped the Faroe Islands earn three points away from home and move them into third place in League C Group 1.
