Malta’s World Cup Qualifiers Group B calendar

Tuesday, November 29, 2011, 17:24

The World Cup Brazil 2014 Group B fixtures involving Malta have been finalised, with the first commitment for our national team being a home match against Armenia on 7 September next year.

Besides Armenia the six-team group comprises giants Italy, besides other rated teams such as the Czech Republic, Denmark and Bulgaria. This array of opponents presents our team with a very difficult itinerary, no matter how the fixtures, mostly clustered within a period of 4 days, were arrived at.

In fact, on the 11th September, Malta are due to face Italy away, followed by another match on 12 October against the Czech Republic on foreign soil.

The next ‘double’ engagement will be on 22 and 26 March 2013, the first being against Bulgaria away, after which we host Italy. On 7 June we face Armenia away followed by two home matches against Denmark and Bulgaria on 6 and 10 September of next year.

The programme will come to an end on 11 and 15 October with a home encounter against the Czech Republic and then against Denmark on Danish soil.

These ten matches to be played within a period of 13 months will be significant tests for our boys whose aspirations should be to compete to the best of their ability and obtain satisfactory results.
