Manchester United's promising youngster Adnan Januzaj has been invited to play in Kosovo's first ever international match on 5 March against Haiti.

The 18-year-old has the option of playing for one of five different nations and is rumoured to be in favour of playing for Kosovo - despite the nation not having a FIFA-affiliated senior team.

Januzaj, born in Brussels to Kosovan-Albanian parents could eventually qualify for England through citizenship and has impressed the national team manager Roy Hodgson this season. 

But the youngster won't be eligible for the Three Lions until the age of 23 through the residency laws.

Eroll Salihu, the secretary general of the Football Federation of Kosovo, told the Daily Star: "We are in discussions with Adnan's family and have a player of his amazing talent play in our first match would be hugely symbolic.

"By playing in this match we are not thing he is making any commitments to us. It is a friendly and would not have any effect on him being able to play for another country in the future," he added.

United's player of the month for January joined the Red Devils from Belgium side Anderlecht 2011 after impressing in a skills session in Brussels.

He has been one of the stand-out performers so far, in a difficult season for the reigning Premier League Champions, with hopes of securing a Champions League spot becoming more unrealistic each week.
