A late rally by Malta women’s national team was not enough to overcome opponents Bosnia & Herzegovina as they fell to the Balkan side during a European 2021 qualifying match at Ta’ Qali last night.
The Malta women’s national team put on a fierce second-half comeback to rattle their opponents but the Balkan rivals prevailed nonetheless with a 3-2 victory.
Bosnia started off strong with forward Sofija Krajsumovic finding the net twice in the first half before claiming the hat trick with an early goal in the second half.
Despite several early chances, the Maltese side took some time to warm and only found their rhythm late in the second half when substitute Emma Xuereb swept past B&H keeper to reduce the goal-deficit to two in the 79th minute.
Malta fought till the final whistle with Brenda Borg managing to get on the stats sheet with a 90-minute goal, which sealed the match on a heartbreaking 3-2 loss.
Prior to the game, captain Dorainne Theuma was presented with a commemorative shirt on the occasion of her 100th appearance for the national team.
