Silvio Vella names revised Under-21 squad for trip to Romania

Malta Under-21 coach Silvio Vella has named a revised squad of 22 players for Tuesday’s UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifier away to Romania.

The squad features several newcomers as Vella had to make changes due to the unavailability of many players because of COVID-19 issues. From the squad for the home qualifier against Denmark (1-3) last Friday, Vella has had to make no fewer than 11 changes for the trip to Romania.

Tuesday’s Under-21 qualifier against Romania, who are second in Group 8 on 16 points, will be played in Giurgiu, kicking off at 18.00.
