Injured Teddy Teuma to miss Malta friendlies against Slovenia, Belarus

Notts County Jodi Jones not part of Malta squad, awaits birth of his child.

Malta will be missing key player Teddy Teuma for their upcoming matches against Slovenia and Belarus, the Malta FA announced.

The Reims midfielder was originally called up by coach Michele Marcolini, despite missing Sunday’s Ligue 1 fixture against Metz which Teuma’s side won 2-1.

The Malta FA said that Teuma had picked up a calf injury in the 2-2 draw against Paris Saint-Germain on March 10, with the Malta player being subbed off in the closing stages of that game.

“After sustaining a calf injury against PSG on the 10th March, Teuma underwent further testing today in a bid to make himself available but unfortunately he will not recover in time for the upcoming fixtures,” the Malta FA said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Jodi Jones was not included in the call-up as his partner is due to give birth in the coming days, according to the local football governing body.

“Given this important time for his family, it has been decided that he remains by his partner’s side, foregoing participation in the upcoming friendly matches,” they said in a statement.
