Malta Under-21 coach Silvio Vella has announced his 20 man squad for the double away friendly fixture coming up next week against Albania.
From the previous Under-21 Championship campaign, Andreas Vella, Jean Borg, Kurt Shaw, Michele Sansone, Myles Beerman, Matthew Guillaumier and Jan Busuttil are still eligible to represent Malta at Under-21 level and all have been named in Vella’s squad.
The rest of the players are all new faces as coach Vella and his assistant Noel Turner will be assessing the new-look squad in the Albania friendlies (November 16 and 19) ahead of the start of the new competition early next year.
The Malta Under-21 contingent are due to travel to Albania on Wednesday.
