The Malta Under-21 team will be back in action on Tuesday at the Centenary Stadium, kick-off at 17:00, this time in a friendly match against Georgia.
This match is intended to aid the team’s preparations ahead of an intriguing double header in October when the Under-21s host Hungary and Cyprus in the last two Group 6 qualifiers from the UEFA Under-21 European Championship.
Following Friday’s 4-0 defeat to a very strong Belgium side, the team resumed training with two sessions over the weekend with coach Silvio Vella assessing his players before finalising his squad ahead of Tuesday’s match.
No big changes in the 19-man list with Zachary Brincat (Mosta) and Yannick Yankam (Qormi) dropping out of the squad following the game on Friday while Valletta defender Nicholas Pulis has been included in the final squad for the Georgia match warm-up.
