The Malta Under-21 team will play a friendly match against Luxembourg as part of their preparations for the opening UEFA U-21 Championship Group 6 qualifier away to Belgium in March.


The warm-up in Luxembourg is scheduled for March 23 at 6.30pm, four days before the curtain-raiser against the Belgians who were in the same section as the Malta U-21 team in the last European U-21 qualifying competition.

 

Sweden, who will be defending their Euro U-21 crown in Poland between June 16 and 30, Turkey, Hungary and Cyprus are the other teams in Malta’s qualifying group.

 

Under the guidance of coach Silvio Vella, the Malta U-21s broke new ground in the 2017 UEFA U-21 Championship qualifying trek after racking up a total of 11 points, finishing fourth ahead of Latvia and Moldova in Group 1.
