The Malta Football Association has invited the Zimbabwe football governing body to send their national teams for a friendly international against Michele Marcolini’s team in March, reports in the African country said.
The Malta national team has no competitive matches scheduled for the first six months of 2024 and they are looking to line up several friendly matches as part of their preparations for the UEFA Nations League matches, which are scheduled to start in September.
Malta are looking to win promotion to League C on their third attempt and the MFA is looking to provide the best possible preparation for the senior national team.
Reports in the Zimbabwe media said on Tuesday that the Zimbabwe national team, the Warriors, has been invited to play a friendly match at the Ta’ Qali National Stadium, in March.
It is reported that the Zimbabwe Football Association is considering the invitation.
However, the Malta FA denied in a statement that it has neither sent an invitation to the Zimbabwe Football Association nor been involved in any negotiation on such a friendly.
It added that details about the national A team friendly matches to be played in March will be announced in the coming days.
Zimbabwe are currently led by a normalisation committee and are looking to appoint a new interim coach.
In the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the Warriors are in fifth place in their group.
After the proposed friendly against Malta, Zimbabwe will be facing two important qualifiers against Lesotho and South Africa.
