Malta centre-back Andrei Agius posted on his Facebook page this morning after Malta's 2-0 defeat to Azerbaijan in Baku on Saturday: "Losing like this is never easy to accept, but this is football at a high level – every mistake is punished. Now back to Malta to end what we started last September."

"Early and late strikes sink fighting Malta," says the headline on the sports page in daily The Malta Independent. Local media also praised the performance of the national team following the defeat.

"We could have snatched an equaliser but we were unlucky," stated Malta midfielder Paul Fenech after his country's 2-0 loss to Azerbaijan.


It was a match with two faces. Azerbaijan were the better side in the first half with most of the possession. The second half was a totally different story.  We put them under pressure impeding them to get hold of possession. It seemed we believed at one point that we were going to get the equalising goal but luck was not on our side. A last minute goal ditched any hope we had of salvaging the match. We have to be more aggressive in front of goal. I do believe that tactically we are being better than opponents. We are also creating chances but in the end we must take the chances we create.
