Sweden showed no mercy with Malta’s Under 21 side in a UEFA U21 qualification match played in Malmo, during which they scored five times in a match dominated from start to finish.


 

 

Manchester City’s John Guidetti was without a doubt the best player for the Scandinavians, scoring two goals in the first half, with his first coming from a freekick 20 meters away from goal which left Malta keeper Borg standing. The Swedes doubled the score on the 20 minute mark with another spectacular goal, this time from Claesson.

 

A few minutes later Guidetti made it 3-0 for Hrgota to make it 4-0 just before half time.

 

On 59 minutes goalkeeper Borg saved what looked like a cetain goal when Hrgota came face to face with him after being perfedtly served by Claesson.

 

10 minutes later Borg could only partially save a shot from Kroon, only for Nyman to slot the ball home from close range.

 

This was Malta’s sixth successive defeat in the group
