Justin Haber left out of eighteen-man squad for Sweden clash

Goalkeeper Justin Haber was left out of the eighteen-man squad named by Malta national coach John Buttigieg for next Wednesday’s 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Sweden at Ta’ Qali. Andrei Agius and Jean Pierre Mifsud Triganza are also out but Mario Muscat, Alex Muscat and Gilbert Agius are back. 
This means that there are only two players based abroad – Manny Muscat of Wellington Phoenix and Andre Schembri of SK Karnten.
Defender Alex Muscat and midfielder Gilbert Agius missed last Friday’s friendly match against Cape Verde as they were recovering from slight injuries while Mario Muscat was rested as Andrew Hogg and Justin Haber played a half each.
The players selected by Buttigieg are:
goalkeepers Mario Muscat (Hibs), Andrew Hogg (Valletta);
defenders Manny Muscat (Wellington Phoenix), Alex Muscat (Sliema), Brian Said (Marsaxlokk), Jonathan Caruana (Hibs), Ian Azzopardi (Sliema), Clayton Failla (Sliema), Kenneth Scicluna (Valletta);
