armenia-malta130607pzcA goal after just seven minutes by Michael Mifsud handed Malta a 1-0 win over Armenia in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Republican Stadium in Yerevan.

It was an great performance by the team led by Pietro Ghedin as although Armenia were determined to collect the three points in their bid to restore the challenge for a place in the World Cup finals, the Maltese fought for every ball keeping their opponents at bay.

For Malta, this was the first win in a competitive match since the 2-1 win over Hungary in a European Championship qualifier at Ta’ Qali in 2006 and the first away win since the 1-0 win over Estonia in Tallinn in May 1993 in a World Cup qualifier.
