With Maltese football still basking in the success of yesterday's 1-1 draw away to Bulgaria, the local media has been full of praise for the boys in red. The Malta Independent carried "Gallant Malta earns 1-1 draw in Sofia against Bulgaria" this morning with special praise for the efforts of Pietro Ghedin's men.
Malta midfielder Clayton Failla was very upbeat about facing Bulgaria as he spoke during Malta's press conference in Sofia ...
We know this is a difficult game. We are going to put on a good show and we hope to get a good result. We have to leave the last two defeats against Norway and Italy behind us completely.
We must concentrate as a unit to get something out of this match. It is all about this game now and I believe that if we play collectively, we can do it.
