Andre Schembri and Clifford Gatt Baldacchino replaced the injured Gareth Sciberras and Jonathan Caruana in the 20-man squad which leaves Malta on Sunday, destination Copenhagen where Malta plays the final match from Group B of the 2014 FIFA World Cup at the Parken Stadium on Tuesday.
On Friday, Sciberras was retained on the bench together with Edward Herrera as both were not fully fit but this time, national coach Pietro Ghedin decided to leave the Birkirkara midfielder out of the squad as he would not be able to make it. Jonathan Caruana sustained an injury in Friday’s game. Andre Schembri, on the other hand, returns after serving a one-match ban.
The squad is made up of:
goalkeepers Justin Haber (Birkirkara), Henry Bonello (Sliema);
defenders Andrei Agius (Torres – ITA), Ryan Camilleri and Clayton Failla (Hibernians), Alex Muscat and Clifford Gatt Baldacchino (Sliema), Luke Dimech (Valletta), Justin Grioli (Balzan);
midfielders Roderick Briffa, Shaun Bajada and Ryan Fenech (Valletta), John Mintoff (Sliema), Edward Herrera, Paul Fenech and Rowen Muscat (Birkirkara);
