Zerafa, Apap included in provisional Malta squad

Malta coach Ray Farrugia has added Daniel Zerafa and Ferdinando Apap to his provisional squad following the withdrawal of Zach Muscat who is sidelined with a knee injury.

Zerafa, who plays for Ħamrun Spartans, had been called up to the national squad under Pietro Ghedin but is yet to make his senior debut while Apap, a key member of the Victoria Hotspurs squad that won the league and KO in Gozo, played under Farrugia in the latter’s second spell as Malta Under-21 coach.

Arezzo defender Muscat had been included in Farrugia’s initial list but pulled out as he is undergoing rehabilitation for a knee injury in Italy.
