New Malta Under-21 coach Gilbert Agius has selected 25 players for the two friendly matches against Qatar Under 23 Olympic team on Sunday, May 30 and Bosnia-Herzegovina five days later.
The games will be played during a 12-day training camp in Slovenia, that will provide the U21 head coach an opportunity to take a closer look at his players who have the potential to be part of the squad for the upcoming 2023 UEFA European U21 Group C qualifying campaign.
The Malta U-21 squad was drawn in the same group with Spain, Russia, Slovakia, Northern Ireland and Lithuania, with the opening matches set to be played in September.
Agius’s current U-21 squad includes a number of players who ply their trade in the Maltese Premier League, including the likes of Hibernians midfielder Ayrton Attard and Marcus Grima who is on the books of Balzan.
Coach Gilbert Agius has also included several newcomers, all ready to embrace this first experience representing their country at this level.
The Malta Under-21 squad will depart for Slovenia on Thursday.
