Hibernians defender Ferdinando Apap has rejoined the Malta squad ahead of Monday’s EURO 2020 Group F qualifier against Norway at the National Stadium (kick-off 20.45).

Apap replaces Gżira United’s wing-back Juan Corbalan who has been ruled out of the Norway match after suffering a hamstring injury in the 7-0 defeat to Spain.


Valletta defender Steve Borg is back in the frame for Malta after serving a one-match ban in Friday’s qualifier in Cadiz.


Monday’s match at the National Stadium will be Malta’s last in the EURO 2020 qualifying campaign.


Norway beat Faroe Islands 4-0 at home on Friday but are out of contention for second place in Group F following Sweden’s 2-0 win away to Romania.


With 18 points from nine matches, Sweden have now secured qualification to the EURO 2020 final tournament as Group F runners-up. Spain, who have 23 points, have won the group.


Norway and Romania are level on 14 points with Faroe Islands and Malta on three points.
