Steve Borg has long established himself as a towering figure in the heart of defence for both club and country.
 


His strength and experience will surely come in handy as Malta prepare to embark on another qualifying competition, starting with a home match against Faroe Islands this Saturday and the encounter with Spain three days later.

 

“This is one of the most difficult groups we have been in,” the Valletta defender said.

 

“There are so many strong teams, especially Spain, Sweden, Norway and Romania, while Faroe Islands have proved time and again that they are a difficult team to play against.

 

“It’s important that we take one game at a time.

 

“Our first assignment is against Faroe Islands and we are focusing on that.

 

“We are playing at home and it’s a chance for us to gain points. We have to make home advantage count. Hopefully we will start this qualifying group with a win.

 

“After that, we will switch our focus to the Spain match and I hope we will manage to recover well for this difficult match.”
