Oct 10, 2020
Posted in:

A Malta Under-21 player has today been withdrawn from the squad after testing positive for COVID-19, bringing the total of positive cases during the current international week to two.

The Malta FA Medical Team have taken all the necessary measures in line with the UEFA Return to Play and local health protocols with the player immediately going into self-isolation. The doctors are currently conducting the contact tracing assessment.


Another player has also been withdrawn from the Malta Under-21 squad and entered a period of self-quarantine as he had been in close contact with a person who returned a positive COVID result. The latter case is not linked to the Malta Under-21 squad.


It is to be noted that, apart from the player who tested positive today, the rest of the squad and staff members returned negative results.


All the members of the Malta Under-21 delegation will be swabbed twice in the space of five days in accordance with the health protocols.


The Malta U-21 team are preparing for their second qualifier in five days as on Tuesday they play against Romania away. Yesterday, the Malta U-21 side played Denmark, losing 3-1 after taking the lead early in the second half at the Centenary Stadium.
