Portsmouth’s Sam Magri – A new star for England or Malta?

Friday, May 21, 2010, 6:00

from Gordon Attard (MalteseFootballStarlets.com)

Born on the 30th March 1994, 16 year old Portsmouth defender Sam Magri is being thought to be the new star in the heart of England’s defense in the coming future.

The talented U16 player who has made his England’s U16 debut on October 15th 2009, has recently captained the British squad. Sam Magri is being rumoured to become a class act as he is showing good promise for England or perhaps for Malta. Why Malta? Magri is certainly of Maltese descent. He can opt to choose playing for Malta in case he will be snubbed by the English coaches.

Portsmouth FC are struggling to keep him at Fratton Park as many are asking for his services now that the Pompey club have been relegated to the Championship. One must say that if Magri decides to change to a Premier League club at this point in time he might develop into a better defender and a possible star for England or Malta.

We hope to see if Sam Magri would like to play for his grandfather’s country in a couple of years time. That will surely give a boost to Malta’s defense in the near future.

    Kont qed naqra ftit fuqu minn xi websites – l-ex coach ta` Portsmouth “Paul Hart rates him as better than Jonathan Woodgate at that age.” Sakemm ma jkunx ghadu laghab loghba wahda ma` l-Inglizi mal-kbar – il-bieb tat-tim nazzjonali Malti jkun ghadu miftuh. Sakemm jikber jista` jigri hafna f` dik l-eta, niehdu ezempju minn Welbeck tal- United kienu ilhom jghidu li plejer kbir u la l-Ghana u wisq anqas l-Inglizi ma haduh ghall-World Cup. Proset ta` l-artiklu.

    Nirringrazzjak Joshua! 

    Huma hafna li ghandhom l-opinjoni taghhom fil-futbol. Avolja mhux kullhadd johrog sens ta kif jikteb jew jikritika. Taghmel tajjeb jew hazin xorta taqlaha.

    Hafna huma l-bravi li jintefaw bil-qedgha, b’idejhom fuq zaqqhom u jistennew xi haga tinbidel fil-futbol specjalment futbol Malti.

    Ahna nkomplu fuq xoghlna u nhallu l-haddiehor jikritika jew ahjar imaqdar. Dik nuza bhala motivazzjoni sabiex inkompli nahdem iktar.
