Malta triumphs in San Marino

Malta registered a comfortable 5- 1 victory against San Marino to win the first out of two matches away from home soil.

Peter Pullicino, who was making his official debut as the national coach, saw his team dominating the match, enjoying a good amount of possession and creating lots of goal scoring opportunities.

Xavier Saliba, Carl Azzopardi, Melvin Borg and Matthew Attard were the goal-getters for Malta as San Marino conceded an own goal to make it 5-0.

In the dying seconds of the game, San Marino pulled a consolation goal to narrow the gap to 5-1.

These matches are a perfect preparation for the upcoming FIFA Futsal European qualifiers in Kaunas, Lithuania, where theĀ  opponents will be France, Albania and Lithuania.

Tomorrow Malta plays its second game against San Marino at 10.30hrs.
