The Malta U-19’s women’s national team secured a comfortable victory in their opening game of the 2023 UEFA Women’s European Championship qualifications.
Led by coach Frank Schembri, the Maltese side faced hosts Armenia and eased to a 4-1 victory to pick up three important points.
Should Malta beat the Faroe Islands in Friday’s qualifier, Schembri’s side would secure promotion to League A for the second time.
Captain Alexandra Gatt of Durham Cestria drew first blood with a third-minute penalty that put Malta in the driving seat.
Birkirkara’s forward Sara Saliba scored twice with Lexine Farrugia, now on the books of Raiders Lija, scored Malta’s other goal.
