In the third and last match of Group 6 of the Under 19's qualifying round played this afternoon in Graun Park Tramore AFC Stadium in Tramore, Malta dominated and won with a 3-1 final score line against Gibraltar.

 

The Under 19's national squad showed the better football all through the 90 minutes and managed to create 25 goal attempts to the 12 created by our opponents. 

 

However, we only managed to go in front 2 minutes from time of the first half with an Aiden Friggieri goal. Gibraltar equilised at the start of the second half when they were awarded a penalty which Coombes didn't miss. 

 

Wayne Attard's lads remained calm and concentrated, knowing they were the best 11 on pitch. In fact, they went again in front in the 59th minute with a Degabriele goal. 

 

The win was guranteed 4 minutes from time thanks to another goal from Guillaimer. 

 

Malta finished 3rd in Group 6, following Switzerland and the Republic Of Ireland who shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the same time today.
