Friendly matches against Estonia
Prior to their upcoming competitive commitments, the Maltese women’s national team will be having two useful try-outs in the space of three days when they face Estonia in friendly matches at the Centenary Stadium this week.
The Malta Football Association yesterday said coach Pierre Brincat has called a squad that is made up of experienced as well as promising players who are knocking on the door of representative selection.
Brincat will certainly utilise these two friendlies to delve into various tactical possibilities, besides providing as many players as possible in his squad with an opportunity to hone their skills on the wide international stage.
It is hoped, the MFA added, that the team’s recent progress is maintained through more positive results, a factor which would boost the girls’ morale. Support from the stands should give the team a further push.
Both matches are scheduled to be played at different times, the first starting at 3 p.m. and the second at 6.45 p.m.
