Malta Under-21 coach Silvio Vella named a 22-man squad ahead of the friendly match against Azerbaijan in programme on Sunday 16th November at the Hibernians Stadium, kick-off at 15:00.
The squad is made up of a number of new faces as several members of the previous squad are now over-age. In fact, only nine players have already played for the Under-21 squad before.
The players selected by Vella are:
goalkeepers Jurgen Borg (Hibs), Matthew Calleja Cremona (Pembroke), Yenz Cini (Valletta);
defenders Samir Arab (Balzan), Cain Attard (Pietà), Emanuel Briffa (Floriana), Ryan Gilmour Cassar (Naxxar), Michael Johnson (St. Andrews), Zachary Tanti (Rabat);
midfielders Terence Agius (Pietà), Gabriel Aquilina (Gzira), Johann Bezzina (Hibs), Antoine Borg (Birkirkara), Ryan Camenzuli (Birkirkara), Kyle Cesare (Pietà), Llywelyn Cremona (Valletta), Brandon Muscat (St. George’s), Kurt Muscat (Rabat), Kurt Zammit (Mosta), Daniel Zerafa (St. George’s);
forwards Luke Montebello (Valletta), Ryan Spiteri (Hamrun).
