2 – Two sets of brothers featured in the Latvia vs Malta match – Joseph and Paul Mbong for Malta and Davis and Janis Ikaunieks for Latvia.

 

3 – Malta’s 1-0 win over Latvia was the third with the same scoreline away from home in competitive matches. The other two were against Estonia (12/05/1993) and Armenia (07/06/2013). The scorers were Kris Laferla and Michael Mifsud respectively – both Valletta players at the time.

 

3 – Malta are unbeaten in three consecutive competitive games for the first time – the other two matches were at home to Latvia 1-1 (06/09/2020) and away to Andorra 0-0 (10/10/2020) all in the UEFA Nations League.

 

10 – It was a special match for Andrei Agius as he captained Malta for the 10th time in the 10th 1-0 victory away from home. Apart from captaining Malta, this win marked Agius’s 50th match away from home. 

 

75 – Steve Borg’s header was the 75th goal for Malta away from home. Eddie Theobald was the first player to find the net for Malta away from home in a competitive match - in the 6-1 defeat against Denmark on 28 June, 1962, during the European Championship Qualifier.

 

400 – Steve Borg has played the highest number of minutes for Malta under Devis Mangia’s leadership – 400.
