Malta women to face Luxembourg in double-header friendlies

Manuela Tesse’s highly-awaited debut as coach of the Malta women’s national team is pencilled for February as Luxembourg will travel over to face the Maltese side in a double-header.

The Luxembourg FA’s announced the friendly matches on their social media channels with the games set to be played on February 17 and February 20.

For Malta, these will be the first games since the September international window when they lost to Azerbaijan 2-0 at the Centenary Stadium before beating Montenegro with an identical score line, in Podgorica.

This double-header will serve both teams as preparation for the newly-launched UEFA Women’s Nations League that is set to be inaugurated later on this year.

The Maltese are currently ranked 88th while Luxembourg sit 118th in the FIFA rankings.

Luxembourg last played in November when they lost 3-2 to Lithuania in an international friendly.

Meanwhile, earlier this month, Dutch media had reported that the Netherlands – European champions in 2017 and current World Cup runners-up, will be facing another top side in Austria during the February window on Maltese shores.
