Malta’s Under 19 team lost 1-0 to hosts Rep. of Ireland in the first of three matches from Qualifying Group 6 of the UEFA Eurpoean Under 19 Championships.


 

Though the home team held the upperhand for long stretches during the match, the boys in red, under the guidance of coach Wayne Attard,  held tight and were unlucky not to grab a point from their first game had it not been for what seemed to be avalid goal being disallowed on the 30th minute mark. During the match, Malta keeper Schranz, in particular, distinguished himself with a number of saves.  

 

Republic of Ireland took the lead in the 17th minute through Stokes.

 

In another match from this same group Switzerland comfortably beat Gibralter 8-0
