Teddy Teuma to miss friendlies due to injuries

Teddy Teuma will be missing the friendly matches against Slovenia on Thursday 21st March and Belarus on Tuesday 26th March after picking an injury while playing for Stade de Reims.

After sustaining a calf injury against PSG on the 10th March, Teuma underwent further testing on Monday in a bid to make himself available but unfortunately he will not recover in time for the upcoming fixtures.

In the meantime, Jodi Jones was not included in the call-up as his partner is due to give birth in the coming days. Given this important time for his family, it has been decided that he remains by his partner’s side, foregoing participation in the upcoming friendly matches.

This action underscores the Malta FA’s understanding and support for the personal circumstances of their players, placing family commitments and well-being at the forefront.
