Malta international midfielder Teddy Teuma capped a spectacular 2020/2021 season for him as his Royale Union St Gilloise side have made sure of the promotion to the Belgian First Division after beating RWD Molenbeek 2-1, on Saturday night
It’s St Gilloise’s first promotion to the top-flight in 48 years where they will meet Brussels rivals Anderlecht, who congratulated Teuma’s side for this massive achievement on their social media profile.
With 59 points after 23 league games, St Gilloise have extended their lead to 20 points ahead of second place RFC Seraing and with seven fixtures left, Teuma and his team have been confirmed as champions of the Second Division as well.
Teuma, who is the captain of the club, has wracked up seven assists and two goals in 21 games for St Gilloise in all competitions.
“This victory sums up our season. We have been consistent all season in what we have proposed. We have just recorded eleven victories in a row, it is not for nothing. We didn’t take any game lightly,” Teuma told local media after the game.
The 27-year-old is part of the 30-man team called up by Malta coach Devis Mangia for the opening World Cup qualifiers against Russia (March 24), Slovenia (March 27) and Croatia (March 30).
