Watch: National team can do well in Nations League if everyone works together – Mangia

National teams head coach Devis Mangia believes that Malta can get very good results in the 2022-23 UEFA Nations League after the draws of the UEFA competition were held on Thursday evening.

Malta were drawn in League D2 and will be up against San Marino and one of Cyprus or Estonia who will face off against each other in a promotion play-off next March, with the winners promoted in League C and the losers dropping down to League D.

Mangia said that it is clear that the national team must show on the pitch their real value during the competition.

“The big difference from our last participation in the UEFA Nations League is the fact that we are now in a group of three teams instead of four,” Mangia said.

“This means that we will have four competitive matches and also two friendlies during the period of competition.

“Against San Marino we need to show the fact that we are a better team than them on the pitch. As regards Cyprus and Estonia we need to wait to see what will happen in March but one thing is clear is that they have a better ranking than us.

“That means that it will be up to us to show on the pitch what we can do.

“However, I believe that if the MFA, players, clubs and all the stakeholders work together I am sure that we can gain some very good results.”
