Bersant Celina played just shy of an hour as Kosovo kicked off their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw against Bulgaria in Pristina.

The 22-year-old had followed up his fine finish for the Swans in the FA Cup clash with Manchester City by netting his first international goal in Kosovo's friendly draw with Denmark last week.

His side had trailed to a Vasil Bozhikov effort at the break, but responded in the second half as Arber Zeneli ensured a share of the spoils that leaves Kosovo third in Group A, behind Bulgaria and early pacesetters England.

Joel Asoro, meanwhile, was on the scoresheet as Sweden Under-21s beat their Scottish counterparts 2-1 in Marbella.

The Swans winger headed home the opener from a Felix Beijmo cross during the early going, before Barry Maguire levelled for the Scots.

But Asoro and his team-mates came out on top after Benjamin Mbunga restored their lead before the break.
