Malta national teams head coach Michele Marcolini has named a 33-man squad as he starts his preparation for next June’s Euro 2024 qualifiers against England, at the National Stadium, and the trip to Ukraine.
The Malta national teams’ head coach is set to hold a one-month training camp in preparations of the friendly against Luxembourg on June 9 and the two Euro 2024 qualifiers.
“As the domestic league of Season 2022/23 has come to an end, Malta National Teams Head coach Michele Marcolini has started preparing for the upcoming Euro qualifiers and has chosen a squad of 33 players for a training camp,” the MFA said in a statement.
“The pre-international window training camp will be held between Monday, May 8 and Tuesday, June 6, when the official call up will be issued. This will give Coach Marcolini and his staff time to work with the players.
“Despite being in the call-up, the players who are currently playing abroad will join the rest of the team at a later stage.”
Among the players to be included in the squad is Hibernians striker Jurgen Degabriele who is back in the fray after missing the opening Euro 2024 qualifiers against North Macedonia and Italy due to a hamstring injury.
