Manuela Tesse has named a final 22-player squad as the Malta women’s team will face Estonia in a friendly match, pencilled for this Friday (kick-off: 6pm).
Ranked 87th, the Maltese side will fly to Estonia on Wednesday and will spend two days in the Baltic nation.
The Italian coach has selected a majority of the players that were picked during the February international window, including forwards Haley Bugeja and Kailey Willis who scored in the Luxembourg double-header friendlies.
The other scorer in those friendlies, Jade Flask, is unavailable for selection after sustaining an injury during Swieqi United’s league game against Mġarr United of last week.
Birkirkara, who are on the brink of an 11th domestic title, are represented by 8 players.
Estonia are ranked 95th following the latest FIFA rankings published last month.
