Malta's adventure in this year's UEFA Nations League started on an unfortunate note as the team's flight to the Faroe Islands was postponed for Wednesday morning. 

The Malta Football Association (MFA) said that the chartered flight to Torshavn had been put back due to a technical problem in the aircraft.

"A technical problem in the aircraft prompted the captain to head back to the Malta International Airport a few minutes after take-off and efforts by the flight operators to reschedule the chartered flight to a later time on Tuesday, using another aircraft, proved futile due to logistical issues," the MFA said in a statement.

“All the members of the contingent have been duly notified of this unforeseen change which was beyond the Malta Football Association’s control.

“The necessary arrangements have been made for the players and technical staff to check into a hotel ahead of the rescheduled departure to Torshavn on Wednesday morning.”
