Malta face the Faroe Islands in an important UEFA Nations League tonight, which could see the Maltese National Team continuing its successful winning streak, eventually sealing their promotion to League C.
Last Saturday’s 3-1 win over Andorra means that the Maltese National Team is now in unchartered territory as never in the history of the Maltese game has a national team found themselves in a position to challenge for the top spot in a qualifying group.
The level of expectation is huge from all the Maltese fans ahead of tonight’s match, with coach Devis Mangia saying that while they are in it, to win it, everyone should feel proud of what our National Team has managed to achieve so far!
Meanwhile, the determined guys of the South End Core have managed to raise enough funds to host a drive-thru screening of the match tonight, which is SOLD OUT and they are also encouraging everyone to take out their Maltese flags in their balconies to support the National Team, as they seek to ‘Make History Together’
Malta Captain Andrei Agius said that “This is a somewhat unusual position for Malta, to be approaching our last group game with a chance of achieving something. We have done a lot of positive things in recent months and this has put us in this position. It is a chance to reap the rewards of all the work we have put in over the past few months.”
Meanwhile, Devis Mangia at the pre-match press conference said that he wants his players to think positively and try to win, adding that they have done positive things for the football community and the country as a whole.
Good Luck Malta! We’re going to be right there behind you, supporting you guys all the way!
