The senior national team will be lining up against Slovakia on Thursday 4th September, kick-off at 18.20, in an away match in preparation for the upcoming Euro 2016 group matches campaign.
Head coach Pietro Ghedin is under no illusion regarding the tough tests which await his team in the Euro competition. His squad is partly a work-in-progress outfit, with a number of players being introduced alongside some established names.
No doubt, he will have a hard task ahead against the Slovaks who are determined to show their quality when they face Malta. Tactically, Ghedin will go for an adaptable formation with probable tweaking in the game plan as well as making the necessary changes during the match in order to determine the core of our side in the engagements ahead this season.
The build-up, including this friendly match, has been on for quite some time.
The moment of truth when we will face the tough tests of the EURO 2016 Qualfiiers is only one match away.
The players selected by Ghedin are:
