 Malta lost their final fixture of the Aphrodite Cup against hosts Cyprus by a late goal to finish the tournament with a total of four points, earned through a draw against Israel and a victory against Estonia. Malta and Cyprus played a fairly balanced match with either side could have ended on the winning side. Both teams had their opportunities to forge ahead but it was Cyprus who were rewarded as they broke the deadlock on the 78th minute. Malta had almost pulled a dramatic equalizer when Dorianne Theuma hit the post from a free kick on the 89th minute.  Malta starting XI: Janice Xuereb; Gabriella Zahra (Kelly Agius Pace 86), Stephania Farrugia, Dorianne Theuma (C), Rachel Cuschieri, Alishia Sultana (Emma Xuereb 80), Martina Borg (Ylenia Carabott 45), Jade Flask, Shona Zammit, Charlene Zammit, Brenda Borg.
