Malta U-16’s girls to host Development Tournament

Following the international appointments which involved the senior women’s national team in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifications and the U-19’s selection in the 2022 UEFA U-19’s European Championship qualifiers, the attention will now shift to the U-16’s women’s side.

Coached by Kathleen Saliba, the young girls will be the hosts in this year’s UEFA Women’s U-16’s Development Tournament.

This annual competition serves as a platform for these girls to start absorbing the international experience while representing their national teams from a young age.

Malta will be playing three games at the Centenary Stadium between Thursday and Tuesday, April 19.

Saliba’s girls will launch their campaign against Lebanon on Thursday, at 2pm. On Saturday, Malta will then host Turkey at 10am before they will wrap up their commitments against Ireland the following Tuesday, at 2pm.
