Under-21 side takes on Finland on Tuesday

The Malta Under-21 national team plays its final game from Group 8 of the UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifying round at the Centenary Stadium on Tuesday, kick-off at 15.00.

The game against Finland will mark the end the U-21 experience for most of this current squad as players born in 1998 and 1999 will not be eligible to play at this level in the next qualifying competition. Despite the difficulties, it has been a useful campaign for the team with more players gaining international experience at this level.
