Michael Mifsud’s outstanding career will come into focus tonight at the Malta Football Association will be honouring the long-serving Malta captain in the friendly match against Liechtenstein.
The friendly, at the National Stadium, will cap an amazing 20-year journey that has seen Mifsud earn widespread recognition as one of the greatest Maltese players ever.
The 39-year-old, currently playing for Sirens FC, is the country’s most-capped player, with 142 appearances, and the national team’s leading scorer with 41 goals.
Mifsud, who made his senior debut in the friendly match against Albania in 2000 at the age of 18, has always represented the country with honour and pride, earning the admiration of the Maltese public for his dedication and achievements.
“All the games I’ve played for the national team are nice memories… every game, every second you play matters,” Mifsud had said in an interview published in a Malta FA publication commemorating 60 years of international football.
“I’ve always been honoured to represent my country and proud of what I have achieved. I wish to thank everyone, especially those who helped me to achieve this. It’s a very special thing.”
