Friendly Test Against Liechtenstein
Nov 11, 2012
Posted in:

Malta will again be on international duty on Wednesday 14 November. This time the stage will be Rhein Park Stadion in Vaduz where Pietro Ghedin’s team will be the guests of Liechtenstein in another friendly match.


 

 

After having performed more than discreetly in their two away World Cup 2014 Group assignments against the might of Italy and the Czech Republic, losing 2-0 and 3-1 respectively, our boys will again be tuned to rehearsing mode when they face the modest, even if  far from easy, sparring opponents from Liechtenstein.

 

The Italian coach Ghedin is aware that a match of this nature should provide him with an opportunity to monitor all his resources, including the emergent ones, while at the same time generate fire in his outfit which could extend our national team’s run to five wins on the trot in friendly matches.

 

The inclusion of several debutants in his provisional squad is indicative of our mentor’s readiness to keep replenishing his list with encouraging faces and thus provide them with the necessary international exposure. The core players in the team are obviously the backbone of a side that has so far raised hopes of a refreshing era for our team, even if positive results are still eluding our national side.

 

The upcoming international encounter in Vaduz could well provide further impetus to this belief. Indeed, we all look forward to a fruitful outcome on Wednesday.
