The first of two friendly matches against the Czech Republic finished with a victory of 2 – 0 for the Czechs.

 

They were the better team on the field but our boys did not give up easily. Although they dominated play our opponents had only one real chance in the first half in the 18’ when A.

 

Thake managed to clear off the line to save the day for the Maltese. Our boys could have changed ends in front but M.Desira shot direct into the goalkeeper’s hands from a very advantageous position.

 

In the second half the Czech boys managed to score twice in the 50’ and 55’ without reply to gain a deserved victory.
