The Malta Futsal national team played two friendly matches against San Marino at the Corradino Pavilion on Sunday and Monday. In the first match, Malta won 4-0 while the second game, the two teams shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw.
On Sunday, Jovica Milijic and Andy Mangion gave Malta a two-goal lead in the first half while in the second half, Xavier Saliba and Jovic Milijic added another two goals.
On Monday, the Maltese had to endure a tough San Marino side who were miles away from the team that was dominated barely 24 hours before.
Malta managed to break the deadlock through a well-taken goal by Xavier Saliba but San Marino soon regained composure and levelled matters through Fabio Gasperoni.
The equilibrium was maintained throughout the second half with both teams cancelling each other out. Malta then regained the lead through Xavier Saliba. Despite this blow, San Marino refused to throw in the towel as in the dying minutes of the game, Fabio Belloni slammed the ball home.
