Women's Friendlies


Malta Women's National Team initiated their Aphrodite Cup's commitments with a 1-1 draw against 59th FIFA ranked, Israel Women's National Team.


The Maltese girls performed at their best against a team who is currently also participating in the UEFA Women's Euro 2017 Qualifications.


After a fairly balanced first half ended at 0-0, Malta forged ahead earlier in the second half through Martina Borg and they could easily double their lead but Borg's effort was well parried by Israel's goalkeeper.


Israel equalized late in the match to deny the Maltese the first three points of the tournament.

Malta starting XI: Janice Xuereb; Gabriella Zahra, Stephania Farrugia, Dorianne Theuma (C), Rachel Cuschieri (Kelly Grace Agius 66), Martina Borg (Ylenia Carabott 58), Alishia Sultana, Shona Zammit (Kimberly Parnis 58), Jade Flask, Charlene Zammit, Brenda Borg (Emma Xuereb 33).
