Frank Schembri names squad ahead of UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship Round 1 mini-tournament

The Malta FA will be hosting the Round 1 Group B4 mini tournament of the UEFA European Women’s Under 19 Championship between the 20th and 26th of October 2021 at the Centenary Stadium.

This mini tournament is part of round 1 of the new UEFA Nations League-style championship. The new format replaces the old qualifying and elite rounds, still featuring one-venue mini-tournaments but now including two leagues with promotion and relegation leading to the 2022 finals in the Czech Republic. The competition returns after the 2019/20 and 2020/21 editions were halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under-19 coach Frank Schembri has named a squad of twenty players for this tournament, namely:


Justyne Caruana (Raiders FC), Giulia D’Antuono (Raiders FC)


Tammy Falzon (Swieqi United), Izabella Camilleri (Birkirkara FC), Mariah Cardona (Birkirkara FC), Rhea Borg (San Gwann FC), Alexandra Gatt (Mgarr FC), Martina Fenech (Birkirkara FC)
