Berisha is the first Augsburg player to be called up to the senior team since Felix Uduokhai. The native Bavarian could be the first FCA actor to earn playing time on the pitch since André Hahn did so in 2014. Commenting on the call-up many believed to be a long time in coming, the European U21 European Champion expressed his joy at having attained his dream.
"It's a dream that's coming true," Berisha noted in a statement, "I've worked long and hard for it, but I also know that I haven't achieved anything yet. I'm looking forward to the a challenge of proving myself in the national team."
"I would like to thank everyone who always believed in me and who always supported me," Berisha continued, "I will give everything and do everything I can to jump in and seize this opportunity."
