Wolves U-21’s Dylan Scicluna open to idea of representing Malta national team

A Wolverhampton Wanderers player is keen on representing Malta on in the international stage.

Dylan Scicluna, 18, has Maltese roots and in the 2022/2023 season he will be featuring for the U-21’s side of Wolves.

On Monday, Scicluna was in the starting formation as Wolves opened their new Premier League 2 Division 1 season with a home game against Chelsea.

The Maltese player, who plays as a central midfielder, was part of the U-21’s side during their pre-season tour in the United States as Wolves participated in the inaugural MLS Next Pro Invitational.

Scicluna lined up to face USA’s outfits Colorado Rapids and Real Monarchs while he was also in action against Chelsea where he staged an impressive performance, contributing to one of his team’s goals as well.

Born in Australia, Scicluna has roots in Malta with his grandparents and many other relatives being born on our shores.

“My family moved to Melbourne, in Australia, but some of my relatives were from Żabbar, Sliema and even Gozo,” Scicluna told the Times of Malta.

With a Maltese passport already in place, Scicluna is eligible to represent Malta and he is open to that idea as that would present him the opportunity to play international football.

“I do have a Maltese passport and I would be open to play for the Malta national team,” Scicluna explained.

Scicluna added that he was already contacted by the Malta Football Association as well.

The new season will be a very important one for Maltese football as the 2023 U-19’s European Championships are set to be hosted in Malta during the summer.

Under the new guidance of coach Toze Mendes, formerly of Valletta, Malta will be looking to put on a strong showing in front of the home fans.

“I would love to be able to play for Malta during next summer’s European Championship,” Scicluna pointed out.

“It would be a great honour.”

The midfielder has been part of the Wolves’ academy since a young age, having also breakthrough into the U-18’s side at the age of 13 back in 2014.

Scicluna’s next league game with Wolves U-21’s will be an away fixture at Blackburn Rovers as they look to pick up their first points of the season.

Dylan has a family member who is also on the books of Wolves – his brother, Lucas.

Lucas, who plays as a midfielder as well, has just signed a new two-year scholarship with Wolves U-18’s side.
