Malta national team to face Greece in friendly international on November 17

The Malta national team will be facing Greece in a friendly international on Thursday, November 17 at the National Stadium, the Malta FA announced.

This will be the second warm-up match for the national team next month after it was already confirmed that the side will be facing Ireland on November 21.

Both matches form part of Malta’s preparations for next year’s Euro 2004 qualifiers that will get under way in March when the team will travel to North Macedonia on March 23 before the much-awaited home match against European champion Italy at the National Stadium on March 26.

This is not the first time that Malta faces Greece who are ranked 52nd in the FIFA World Ranking.   

Malta has met Greece 10 times along the years.

The national team’s first meeting with the Greeks was an historic one as it saw the national team secure their first-ever competitive win when they beat Greece 2-0 in a European Championship qualifier at the Stadium on February 23, 1975.

Greece won seven other matches with the other two matches ended in a draw.

The last time the two countries met was 11 years ago, on June 4, 2011, during another European Championship qualifier, and Greece prevailed 3-1.
