The Malta Under-19 team’s preparations for their UEFA Under-19 Championship qualifying commitments continue this week with two away friendly matches against Luxembourg.

Between November 13 and 19, the Malta U-19 team will face hosts Italy, Cyprus and Slovakia in the UEFA U-19 Championship Group 6 qualifiers.

The first friendly match against the Luxembourg U-19 team will be played this Tuesday, in Bissen, while the second game is on Thursday at the Stade Communal in Mondercange. Both matches kick off at 19.00.

Winston Muscat, the Malta U-19 coach, has taken a squad of 20 players for the matches against Luxembourg which follow two friendly matches against Azerbaijan, played earlier this month at the Malta FA Training Grounds. In the first encounter with Azerbaijan, the Maltese youngsters hit back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 while the second friendly ended goalless.
