albanian heritage: FIFA also is reviewing statements that Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic made after the match, according to The Chronicle Herald. Xhaka and Shaqiri celebrated their goals by making a nationalist symbol of their ethnic Albanian heritage. FIFA also said Saturday it has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Serbian Football Association for crowd disturbance and the display of political and offensive messages by Serbian fans. Both players put their open hands together with their thumbs locked and fingers outstretched to make what looks like the double-headed eagle displayed on Albania's flag. Shaqiri was born in Kosovo, the former Serbian province that declared independence in 2008. The thumbs represent the heads of the two eagles, while the fingers look like the feathers.
